Every Friday afternoon I gather around the Skype with my remote colleagues at Yankee Publishing for a weekly review. Often, after the business is done, we use the opportunity to catch up on things not specifically work-related; for me, squirreled away in a bunker all by myself all week, this is invaluable workplace-social-time. Indeed, sort of saying hello to Sarah, Julia, Lloyd, Michelle and Alanna here at The Guild every day as I arrive, it is my workplace social life.
Today colleague Lou showed off his snazzy new iPhone 7 Plus by taking a photo of a soda bottle, using the phone’s portrait mode; as a result, you can see a fuzzy abstraction of me in the background. The effect is rather striking.
