I know this is meant to be an easy joke but you are vastly underestimating the application of metaverse.

Metaverse is not about adopting VR/AR. Metaverse is about the move to Web3 and onto a decentralized ecosystem powered by cryptocurrency (will be built on ETH, considering it’s not peaked to Bitcoin levels yet). Facebook has also announced its building of a crypto wallet, which should tell you everything you need to know. The most immediate application of FBs metaverse is of course spreading its current technologies across its digital portfolio, but META is about leading the charge into Web3, which we should all be worried about.

Okay just sharing something that made me happy today.. In a DM convo w a male coworker, he used a winky face (cultural differences, don’t think he meant to make me uncomfortable) I vented about it in my WIT slack at work that it feels icky when older men use 😉, especially in DMs My boss (a woman) reached out privately and asked if she needed to step in and make me more comfortable. I didn’t need it, but knowing she’s got my back was amazing. Women leaders make me feel 😍😌

We officially made it through Black History Month without my agency mentioning it ONCE in a company wide email, slack, or any other initiative whatsoever. They also never mentioned Lunar New Year! This lack of awareness and care for employees has validated my recent job search. Has anyone else experienced this?

My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.

Novice investor here so please bear with me. I opened a vanguard account dec 2019 and invested around $1K..over the course of the year I invested about $68k.. I just checked the total gains and it shows about $10k. That’s about 14% gain via investment in small amounts in vgt, zoom, tsla, ark, vtsax etc..Is it fair to assume 15% gain year over year ?

My work partner has a toddler and frequently misses meetings or goes on mute due to kid-related things. They also have to disappear around 6pm for a few hours bc of kid. Even if/when they can chat later in the evening, they’re usually pretty checked out or I just don’t feel like brainstorming at 10pm. Long story short, I feel like I’m picking up a lot of the slack due to their inability to be around, but I also feel bad because obviously parenting is hard. Can anyone relate?

I’m a single parent and mid-level associate, and have been struggling with the increased expectations from pandemic-level work. I do not have the luxury of a full-time nanny, maids or stay-at-home spouses like most of the partners I work with and the expectation that I be available 24/7 (and on zoom) is impossible to keep up with lately. Work was manageable pre-pandemic (and I really enjoyed it) but these new expectations seem unsustainable. Anyone else in the same boat? How are you managing?
