I'm taking a Zoom class later today.
I'm having root canal surgery later today.
I'm becoming a vegan later today.
Only one of the above is true and it will truly be painful. Not that the instructor is bad. I'm sure she'll be fine and that the class will be informative, but I am not completely sold that Zoom (or its equivalent) is the wave of the future, especially as a replacement for in-person workshops.
At best, it is a substitute like Near-Beer was a substitute for real beer.
Full report to follow.
