The Meeting – The Web-Cam

I noticed as soon as I sat down that although the monitor screen on the computer went blank – perhaps a screen saver – the web cam still sat top the monitor.

Was this meeting being recorded? I don’t know.

I do know that it left me feeling a bit uneasy that I was sitting in a direct line from the web camera.

A significant portion of the meeting consisted of me alternately trying to align myself almost in line-of-sight with the interviewer so that I could stare at the web cam (“If you are recording this I want you to know that I suspected you were recording this”) and alternately trying to re-seat myself so that the interviewer’s head blocked the line-of-sight from the web cam.
