.... I agree that a virtual meeting was totally the way to go
tonight. With all us geeks, you'd think we'd have a chat/voice/video/
whatever channel(s) setup eh?....
I had a manager at hp (he was only a manager through seniority and we
were on a total bastard project [one that was scheduled to be
canceled for outsourcing]).
We were his first experience at management. I went to our 1 on 1
meeting for the first time and he had me open a shared document that
we filled out as we sat in the room looking over our laptops. It was
a completely surreal experience that I absolutely refused to repeat.
We went to paper within a month.
I think that we have established the need for human contact here.
Otherwise we could just join dorkbot-elsewhere or dorkbot-virtual.
I meant that we should continue on in spirit if not in physical
presence given that the wet roads are freezing.
I am gonna solder some more now.
