I’m not a fanatical advocate for video in our remote life – using it when necessary is my primary motto.
When I am on a call and people are not using I don’t mind as long as their focus is on the call, as long as they are listening to what everyone is saying, as long as they are engaged.
Video shouldn’t be the stick that makes sure you are listening to meetings.
If it is, you don’t have a video problem, you have an attention problem, and that is a bigger problem to solve that will not be addressed simply by turning your camera on.
