This article examines in detail a single attempt to use video telephony for the type of informal communication that is common among people who are physically collocated. It presents an evaluation of a desktop video telephony system deployed in 1990. One can consider the evaluation reported here as a case study both in using video for spontaneous conversation and in applying social science theory and method to the task of system design and evaluation.
