It's NOT OK to use #zoom as a video conference "solution" for your anti-capitalist meetup (oh, the irony!) or group or whatever.
Or even a regular conference.
Those seemingly innocuous "tools" aren't really free.
It's not a neutral choice. It excludes critical people.
So please, PLEASE if you know an expert, DO ASK THEM FIRST before deciding based on what you think you know!
They might well be able to help out with something that's just as good but ethical.
If you have a problem to be solved and you ask an expert for a solution, describe the _problem_, not the tools to be used.
And listen to her answers.
If your car doesnt do it right, you bring it to a repairshop and are told, some screw in the carbureter has to be replaced, you won't discuss this and argue sth. like "but cant we cleanup the mirrors instead?"
But if its about something digital, the most complex machinery we ever build, everyone seems to be expert.
