Better than having to get up and talking to the person or having a 30 min meeting with the whole team for bs reasons

Microsoft Teams is worse, you miss way too many critical pings bc the pings are isolated in channels under un-expanded "Teams" of which you have way too many of bc there's no guidance of when to create a new Teams with its own set of channels.

Yeah you can. Click the three dots next to the channel, then Channel Notifications, then choose what you want

Slack is great for like “hey can we move our meeting back 10 minutes” or “ I can’t find that document can you send it to me when you get a second.” Unfortunately people abuse it and use it to replace meetings, share important information, talk shit about coworkers etc. I’d rather just text.

If we thought about it back in March, we probably could’ve predicted which companies would do well, like Zoom, Amazon, Instacart, etc. And invested accordingly. Anyone have any thoughts for forecasting the next few months? Opportunities to take advantage of?

Anyone feel like they just aren’t a good attorney/cut out for being a lawyer? Started out doing corporate work, hated it. Switched over to litigation because I had originally went to law school thinking I wanted to be a litigator of some kind. About one year in, I work my tail off and have the reputation for doing so. Almost like clockwork my written work gets torn apart, and I make what i feel are stupid mistakes. I try to cut myself some slack because I’m junior but the doubt creeps in.
