I think it could be the norm at some point in the future. There are other benefits to it (even with current technology) that are often overlooked in my opinion. For example, multiple people can share their screens at the same time, in addition to having the main content up on the “projector”. Since individual’s screens are attached to their avatar, it is up to you what you want to look at, and everyone knows what others are paying attention based on your location. Also, multiple teams or subsets of a team can work together in the same larger area.. think of it like in the office how you can drift from room to room to talk to other groups. Thoughts? This is a topic I have thought about a lot and would love to discuss more if anyone wants to.

There is at least one company that makes this software. You become an avatar in a virtual meeting space. Useful actually to see people’s body language to an extent. Also useful for making multitasking impossible.

What's the best way to negotiate PTO on an offer? Got a very fair salary up front don't really see the need to push the boundary there because from reports online they are offering higher than market average. But the PTO accrual rate is incredibly low. 10 days a year for the first year + 9 holidays (coming from a job with 20 + all holidays). I'd like to see if I can ask for 15 to start and have the normal accruals bumps after that.
