Issue #99  (How I Manage Random Daily Notes) 01/04/21

Right at the beginning of the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns someone on Hacker News asked: Meeting overload – how many do you have daily/weekly?

Business Meeting

The question, as expounded on in the post, was mainly addressed at engineering leads and similar people in management positions.
