This is somewhat amusing. What does it say when you're meeting someone over a telepresence robot instead?

Our vacation in Canada gave me the opportunity to try out my first milky way panorama: (click image for full resolution) There are still some issues with it, but for a first try, I'm pretty happy. I used the great instructi...
