EL CENTRO, Calif. - Ruben Moreno Garcia, who served three combat tours in Iraq, now lives with his family in this Imperial Valley community and works as a mechanic in Yuma, Ariz. Kathryn Williams, a clinical psychologist for the Department of Veterans Affairs, has an office in La Jolla, more than 100 miles away. Williams and Moreno Garcia meet once a week for an hour or so to discuss his progress in coping with post-traumatic stress disorder, the condition common to U.S. military personnel who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The economy of tomorrow may include Jetsons-like offices and factories. Or it may look something like the scene today at a nearby Kinko's Copy Center.

Not only is Jerry Seinfeld well versed in the mysterious vanishing bee situation, he claims to know the root cause. "The thing is," Seinfeld says in a hushed voice at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, "we're not even supposed to talk about it. But DreamWorks is behind all that. It's a publicity stunt. We vacuumed out all the hives all over the world. We're just trying to get bees in the news! Free publicity is the way we look at it." As if Seinfeld and DreamWorks need any free publicity.

Professor Socorro Marcos, a department head at Monterrey Technical Institute, was chatting recently with two postgraduate students. Julio Larios asked her to serve on his thesis committee, while Juan Carlos Cielo Flores had questions about a paper's final draft. During these discussions, Larios was in Honduras, Cielo Flores was at his office in Peru, and the professor never left her desk at the Monterrey Tech campus in this northern Mexican city.

The TelePresence Meeting system, designed to enable companies with hundreds of employees and multiple offices to have face-to-face meetings, will boost customers' productivity and reduce travel costs, said Marthin De Beer, a Cisco vice president. The product may reach annual sales of $1 billion in five to seven years, he said.

A new 110-seat videoconferencing auditorium at Cerritos College may not transmit any classes until next semester, but the $500,000 project could be available for rental by private groups next month, officials at the Norwalk campus said Wednesday. The project, funded mostly by a grant from the state Department of Energy, is expected to feature a 10-foot-by-10-foot video monitor, an overhead document-enhancing camera and microphones at each seat in the stadium.

Hewlett-Packard Co. on Monday jumped into the business of providing the technology -- and building the rooms -- for large companies to hold virtual face-to-face meetings regardless of the distance between participants. HP's Halo Collaboration Studio offers a nearly immersive environment where people can see each other, talk and collaborate remotely as if they were in the same room. The underlying network, built and serviced by HP, minimizes delays and never crosses the public Internet.
