Just interviewed an intimidatingly smart Russian woman. Masters in maths, Ph.D. in theoretical computer science. Would ask her a complex question and she'd improvise a multi-layered answer and fire it right back almost too quick for me to understand.

Kinda afraid to hire her, because if she turns out to be egotistical or a bad listener I won't be able stop her, she'll just run rings around me

Have to go to the office today for the first time in a couple of years. The new CEO wants to meet everyone. Never mind the hours wasted commuting and a little thing called Covid19 because there will be pizza.

Sounds to me like a certain someone wants to keep the ol' patriarchy unsmashed, eh? Eh?

Had to go to the office today and borrowed a much fancier web camera than the one I use at home. It doesn't make me look like a severed head in a bag that was found in a bog. I might invest in one.

i was just on a teams call and there was a chap there whose image quality was head and shoulders above everyone elses, so i asked what he was using - a sony mirrorless 'proper' camera, i had assumed before that, that bandwidth optimisation was the main reason image quality was poor, but no, it's just shitty webcams.
