Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
My 2011 MacBook Pro is getting too hot for Zoom meetings. Deciding on getting the latest MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. Which would be the better investment? I also occasionally use InDesign/Photoshop/Audacity. But mostly Google Docs/Sheets. Can the Air handle those efficiently and simultaneously?
Hi folks! While we get through this quarantine, if anyone of you is interested in learning classical Carnatic music virtually(via Skype/similar) from a qualified and experienced music teacher, please-
My firm (over 1,000 lawyers) just put a firm-wide “we need to talk” zoom call on all associates’ calendars for later today. No one knows what it’s about or will give any info. Not going to be a productive day.
Does the firm have the ability to actively monitor skype chats? Does the people consultant have the power to oversee or someone else? Just curious
I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.
are Skype calls always awkward

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

Is everyone always on a video call at Google? Many other companies have communication around zoom/video call fatigue, but wondering if that culture has dipped into Google's at all?
Struggling heavily with mental health amid the crisis, due to loneliness and the gradual realization that we're really in this for the long haul and things likely aren't going back to normal for a long time. Zoom calls help a little but not that much and the constant barrage of people talking about 'the new normal' only makes it worse. Any tips/advice?
Sometimes I get on a conference call with myself so that Skype says "in a conference call" and I can get stuff done but stay online

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
