Very timely

I was thinking about checking out jitsi, so this was a welcome find in my feed. Thanks for doing this.

Why talk about Jitsi

I was wondering if I am expected to listen to a podcast if the first minute or so is the presenter explaining how they don't know much about the what they are about to talk about?

Seems the listeners time isn't being respected.

I really enjoyed this episode

As Jitsi seems to be making the rounds coming out on top as the open source alternative to ZOOM this was really interesting and made me want to play around with it.

Thank you very much

Re: Why talk about jitsi?

To the person moaning about 'having' to listen to, or 'being expected' to listen to, a podcast about jitsi in which the host first says he doesn't know a lot about jitsi.

I think HPR might not be what you are looking for.

And you need to learn where the delete or skip button is.

In the few shows I have done for HPR, I have always been very conscious that there are, inevitably, people out there who know more than I do about what I am talking about.

Why don't you do a show about something and show us all just how smart you are?

Why listen?

Why indeed should anyone listen to an episode of HPR? The only answer I have is because it is of interest to you. I think of HPR as a party with a bunch of friends, not as a college curriculum. I listen to the ones I want to listen to, I skip the ones I don't. And I am not in the least bothered to think that there are people out there who don't want to listen to my shows.

Re: Why listen?

These days I probably only listen to about ten percent of episodes.

I don't know why this is compared to the near 100% I listened to when I first found HPR. It is probably because I arrived at a peak, right slap in the middle of the legendary Ahuka Libra Office series exactly when I needed a leg up doing spreadsheets.

And also around that time Klaatu and Dave were doing a lot more.

But at no time have I complained about any episode.

My mother used to tell us, if you can't say anything nice, keep your mouth shut.

And nowadays I don't do any podcasts here because I have become too conscious that there will be listeners who know more about what I am talking about than I do.

But comments like the one criticising Operat0r for starting his cast by saying he knows little about the subject is not exactly encouraging to others, is it?

Re: Why listen?

Because by telling you that he doesn't know much about Jitsi operat0r has just invited you or anyone else out there to do a follow up show if you happen to know more.
