Conference calls: excuse for nudity and websurfi

One more try:  For those of you at SOI, I was *ALWAYS* dressed for my con calls… Really, I was! 

An international survey reveals that nudity and inattention are astonishingly common among particpants in conference calls:

So what are they doing instead? Twenty-nine percent of British workers say they doodle, while 22 percent of Germans surf the web. Twenty percent of Americans say they have side conversations with someone else during conference calls.

It gets weirder: 22 percent of Hong Kong workers admit they weren't fully dressed during their last teleconference, while 14 percent of them were doing their makeup or hair.
