Strange musing on virtual life

I spend most of my days looking at faces that are looking vaguely in my direction, and returning the favor.  Will looking people in the eyes seem weird when we return?

Especially odd since there are a couple people with poorly placed cameras who I only ever see the sides of their heads.

A head-hunter from a fruit-like company contacted me on Facebook for careers.  "Role would require full on-site after Covid" so it was a no-go.  I wonder how much of that they are getting, and if this will change?

for recruiters to get the 'nah I like being remote, so thanks'  but then again companies needed a come to jesus moment in that regard anyway

well, I have 2 big monitors, but the laptop (camera) is off to the side, and I don't look at it, because I have the teams window on the big monitor ..

I've spoken with a couple recruiters who want in-office candidates. After 5 years of working from home that's a non starter.

I like the people who alt tab between Zoom and a brighter browser or email client - you can see the lighting change as they switch back and forth.

Crazy days Mr. Blockhead! Looking forward to trying the PS5 one of these days.

Warmest regards,

Sorry about the shortages.  No one told us about daylight savings, and it screwed everything up.
