Zoom is Not Enough
14 Aug 2023

Zoom is ordering their employees back to the office.

In today’s BBC news, “the firm said it believed a “structured hybrid approach” was most effective and people living within 50 miles (80km) of an office should work in person at least twice a week” (8 Aug. 2023, Sherman, www.bbc.com/news/business-66432173)

Why are employers convinced that putting humans in the same room at least a few days week is preferred over working through a screen all week?

For the same reason, our university requires all online master’s degree students to physically attend classes 2 of the 52 weeks in a year.

The 2023 Commencement Speech by Roberts Lanka
1 Jun 2023

My start at LCC began quite wildly. Eager for a fresh start, on the way from my house in Liepāja, only an hour away, I cut all my dreadlocks at the side of a forest road and arrived in the dorms with a fresh buzz cut. Like many freshmen, I felt incredibly lonely for the first two weeks, until I was taken under the wing of my roommate and introduced to the study abroad group, which I became friends with almost instantly, being called the most American non-American for my affinity of the Packers, SNL, and root beer floats.

Since then, many things have changed.
