guy who joins the meeting with video on by default, is the only one, and its just kind of looking up his nose for 30 seconds until he finds the button to turn it off

it's the same guy every time

I'm that guy. Camera is always on unless there's a reason to turn it off.

I like people to know whether or not I'm paying attention to them.

The only exceptions are "watch somebody else use Jira" meetings, which I despise.

Jira is Australia's revenge for introducing wild rabbits to their god forsaken island

i find the camera makes it a lot easier to signal simple things like yes/no, agree/disagree etc without unmuting. It's higher bandwidth communication. If I'm just listening to some allhands or whatever yeah I'll turn my camera off cause why bother but

:yossame:

i need to do something with my hands if i'm in a meeting longer than maybe 20mins, and virtual meetings with no camera on have been a godsend. finally, i can doodle or crochet or whatever without people thinking i'm distracted. if i don't have something to occupy my hands, i'm just going to disappear into my own thoughts tbh.

just realized. doesnt that mean that you have to pay attention even more than them to see if you're being paid attention to? sounds like a self-own there

i usually have my camera on if i'm interviewing someone or in a 1:1, but if it's a group meeting there's a fair chance i'm turning my camera off so i can pick my nose in peace
