    How about adding your Desktop screen to the conversation? ScreenCamera is a software I use that allows me to stream the desktop inside Skype, Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Messenger, blogTV,, Mogulus, Ustream, and so on.

    ScreenCamera can also connect to my Webcam and stream both Desktop and Webcam at the same time.

    It works with a video resolution of 640×480 and it is hard to find something not to like about it. It is cheap and to me it is a must have tool for video conferencing.
