My lips move, but you can't hear what I'm saying

Starting this afternoon, all the IT leadership of my company meets to hear key messages for the year and network. I won't have any problem hearing the messages, but the networking piece will be a challenge since I have laryngitis. Although I wouldn't say my throat is "comfortably numb," at least it doesn't hurt. I just can't talk, which many that know me will undoubtedly find humorous.

As big a proponent as I am of collaborative technologies that help span geographic distances between people, in my view they are adjuncts to physical interaction, not a replacement for it. We'll see how well I can take advantage of this opportunity with my current physical limitation. Networking with laryngitis is like walking on a sprained ankle.
