The process of planning office hours turned out to be quite a lot for me, and I ended up scuttling the idea for a bit. But, it is on! We’re going to do the first one tomorrow at 3:00 PM America/New_York (1900 UTC – 24hrs from now.)
Experimentally, it will be:
- on Zoom (video optional)
- recorded and published
- 45min long
- topics and format TBD, but casual
wrt Zoom: I know it is unfree, and this may make some people not want to participate. However, it is the most reliable video conferencing tool I have used so far. Again, this is experimental, so we could switch down the road. However, this is what we’re going to do for now.
Zoom can be fetched via
nix-shell -p zoom-us.
I have setup the meeting to not automatically turn on video or audio.
