Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I was online Friday afternoon for the conversation with Dr. Savage. I wasn’t expecting to be able to, as I was supposed to be at work. Well, everyone got sent home at 7 a.m., so I was able to log on. (I go to work at 6 a.m.)
Thanks to Mr. Blue Yeti for working the boards; he did a yeoman’s job. The main thing I got out of the conversation was that, in my opinion, Rob Long appeared to be in a state of full-blown panic. He looked rumpled, and was speaking a mile a minute throughout the whole thing. Peter, on the other hand, was calm and collected, even if he was in his “pajama top” under his jacket. The Zoom format worked well and made me feel like I was back at work (we have been having multiple Zoom meetings, as most of our people are working from home).
Rico members asked good questions, and Dr. Savage gave as good answers as he could, given the lack of knowledge for most of us. I got to see what some of the members look like (Here’s looking at you, @Instugator!) and hear voices of those without cameras. I was “outed,” since the box where my face would have been contained my real name and not my Ricochet handle. Not that anyone noticed or cared.
Those who bought Zoom stock at or close to its IPO this year have been amply rewarded — their business is really benefiting from the coronavirus epidemic.
I’d participate in another one, if we have one, as long as I’m available.Published in
