Stop those bedraggled conference calls
I’m so sorry, reporters! I straight up did not send a TFR last week (I always say that and then wonder if anyone actually noticed).
The reason is, I am in Israel (!) for a journalism seminar and have an extremely packed schedule. It’s 11pm here and I just got off a call with some journalists back in the US, which inspired this post.
I’ve been wanting to recommend Zoom for a while, because it truly is the best conference call app. (A very close second goes to UberConference.) The problem is, I feel like everyone uses Zoom already. But.
You know those Snapchat filters that are famous for smoothing out your skin and defining your eyebrows or whatever? Zoom can do that. On a conference call!
Personally, I think this is one of the most hilarious features I’ve ever come across, and it says something about the State of our Society Today. But Zoom is also just the most reliable conference call tool, so there you go. Turn on that webcam, reporters!
