Too many people showing off their bookshelves on TV.
Nice shelves and love the beard - look like Hemingway now! I am actually going counter to trend with the amazing bookshelves. Sure, I have 'em, but why flaunt 'em?
So, my Zoom, Teams, GMeet, Skype studio has one of the Monets in the background. The colors are a perfect match for that room and a number of people have remarked on how soothing it is to see that from the other side.
On the subject of video conference calls though - this has gotten out of control! It is nice to have
, great for presenting or brainstorming or special team meetings.
But now it seems that every
call must be televised. I am happy to be social and friendly periodically throughout the week, but I really am a hermit and I really did like taking plain old telephone calls for most meetings.
Not that I run around the house in my underwear like Paul says he does, but I definitely used to spend early mornings working in my favorite leopard or tiger print pajamas. Sadly, those days are gone. : ( But if it makes work-from-home easier for the newbies, that's ok.
The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images. - Guy Debord
