Some of my clients have had a blurred zoom background. It’s definitely not static; the background blur moves as their cameras move around too. Anyone know what this is?!
About to give my notice... company is having alternate week (wfh/office) arrangement. is it more appropriate to wait for a f2f convo or do it on zoom? (as an introvert doing it virtually feels more comfortable... but what do u think?) 🤨
I’m going to start doing read alouds on Zoom for the students. Any recommendations for upper elemetary? Maybe something uplifting to help battle the anxiety they might be feeling?
Swung open the door to the living room singing and dancing to the book of mormon. my wife turns around and whisper yells "I'M ON ZOOM!" Fail.
I’m launching a Slack group for in-house counsel to network, share resources, and job opportunities. If you’d like an invite send me a DM!

Anyone feel almost shamed or snarky comments are said when you do your job or don’t slack like some of the coworkers? I don’t want to be rude but also want to let them know it’s not cool.
When you're taking PTO and communicate you will be unreachable during that time due to personal reasons, so co-workers slide into your IG DMs with work chat because you don't respond via Slack or email 🥴
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?
Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?
4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition? I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.
Received my conditional pre-approval for global entry renewal and there are 0 available appointments for the next 12 months either via Zoom or at my local airport. Any tips on when to check or how to get one? Current authorization expires in January.
Would you guys be interested in doing a virtual group activity like virtual happy hour or movie watching tomorrow? (Sunday)
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent

Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?
