Welcome to 2005

Posted on: October 16, 2020

In 2005, Twitter was incubating, YouTube was a newborn, and Facebook was a year old. So my response to the tweeted news below was: Welcome to 2005!

Apparently this move affects “about 108,000 or more than 80 per cent of public officers”. The rest are stuck in an even older time bubble.

Despite the “liberation” these users still might not be able to Zoom or Meet as they system they are on “does not support Web-based video conference as it does not interact with other hardware components on the laptop such as the microphone and camera”.

Officially we have these limitations in the name of security and secrecy. Unofficially we might simply be working on the assumption that people are selfish and stupid.
