A little chicken pox won't slow me down

Cornell professor, attorney, and venture capitalist Zach Shulman didn't let the chicken pox slow him down. Instead of canceling his lectures, he set up shop in his home office and conducted class via SightSpeed.

Chicken pox or not, we're having class

Zach simply had one of his students connect a laptop to the projector, and he taught class as normal. "It worked well. It really makes a difference being able to see the students. I'm going to use it for all my classes until I am no longer contagious," says Zach, "plus, I can pause the video when I get an itch."
