Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?
Important Zoom Person, “Could everyone go on mute.” Text from coworker, “We can hear you poop.”
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
Bit the bullet and bought a dyson airwrap. Here’s hoping for less time to look fab on those zoom calls 😅 any tips?
What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
I like to toggle between fully touched up appearance and not at all on Zoom, just to remind myself…
What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard.

Do Feds really not know we can see their Skype status that they have been away from their computer for 8 hrs on their telework day?

I feel for the jr’s who have started their careers in this remote world, missing out on all the experience that comes with being in an office surrounded by people and creative work instead of the silo of WFH. Any suggestions on how to keep them engaged and learning without it feeling forced with zoom tutorial sessions?
They ask: “Sorry, Skype issues, can you repeat the question?” They mean: “I wasn’t paying attention and will now waste everyone’s time. Please recap the last 5 mins and and repeat the question.”
When you and your manager randomly geek out about VR over Skype instead of finishing up a deliverable - Friday's, am I right? 😎

If anybody is on the same boat, do you think that I should be worried & should continue to follow up frequently with the lawyer?
