Home office preference question. I am getting ready to redo the layout of my home office. One option I'm considering would have my desk facing a wall. I am wondering if anyone with this current setup has any feedback about it. I would face the wall so that I would have a better background for video conferences (am on about half the day) and also my cord situation would be cleaner.￼￼

Looking for a treadmill for a standing desk. But also want one that I can run on. I would like walking distances to go up to 4-4.5 and running up to 8-9 mph.

Probably not the best bowl, but does anyone have insight/experience with Amazon’s recruiting process for HQ2. A recruiter reached out for a PM position; did the first phone screen, immediately heard back about proceeding to a second phone screen; had the second one, recruiter immediately followed up saying they were waiting to hear from the hiring team and it’s been radio silence for a week+ now. I assume I’m no longer under consideration… Thoughts/insight?
