Today, I listened in on a recorded meeting.
I usually do not refer to meeting recordings as it feels like a more expensive use of my time than real time attendance. Another example of how subjective the value of time is.
I took time out to listen to this recording mainly because I wanted to get the unfiltered view of some stakeholders.
People quickly forget they are being recorded, and thy assume no one will refer to the recording. I used this assumption to my advantage, and I learnt far more than I thought I would.
I am thankful for those who speak with sincerity both on and off record.
