Stop Doing Video Conferencing Wrong

We’re stuck with video chats. Can we please follow some simple rules?

We’re not going back to the office. Not this summer and maybe not even this fall. 2021 is a toss-up. Even when we get back into the office, all-hands meetings with dozens of people squeezed in cheek-to-jowl are probably over.

This is our new normal and part of it is video conferencing with coworkers, family, and friends. We live a good portion of our daily lives in little squares, struggling to maintain eye contact and not look like we’re glancing down at the phone in our laps or at Price is Right playing on the TV just behind our laptop screen.
