I totally had the "working together quietly like cube-mates" experience via Skype and it was pretty awesome.
My friend and I had worked out some software issues with an art installation I'm helping her with and we moved on to just doing some physical assembly on our respective components for a while. It was nice to be on camera together kind of sharing a space together even though technically we were several thousand miles apart.

We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
