After #lca2021 I once again feel weird and miss the helping with bump out and “travelling home” closure.
Much like #pyconlineau2020 before it, it’s been a part of my life for the last few months (and I’m just an AV type, I can’t imagine how much more this would hit the amazing organisers) and it feels weird that it’s just “unplug the extra computers on my desk and ... watch tv I guess?”
@patrick yeah, I’m not convinced that “meet up in person” is the ideal “post online conference” ritual at the present time 😃 (There was apparently a lunch today on my city which I didn’t go to for similar reasons, plus avoiding public venues.)
But definitely *some* transition ritual would help. Even if it’s just at home.
