Most of our communication at Automattic is text-based. We use Slack and P2 instead of phone and email. But occasionally it helps teams to conference together and a video call is a great way to do that.
Today it turned out that the following are good things to have nearby when you do a video call:
- A funny hat
- A cat or puppy
- A musical instrument
- A whiteboard made out of materials that aren’t a manufactured whiteboard
- A loud bird parked on the backside of your laptop
Trust me on this. Share with your team.
