Minor Work-related Rants

1) If there are more than, say, five people in a meeting, it is a good idea to go around the room and have them introduce themselves. This is particularly true if the meeting is a telecon and some of the folks on the other end are off screen.

2) Speaking of which, a conference held using video techniques is a video "telecon." It is not a "telecom."

3) Filling in more details on an outline is "fleshing it out." The term "flushing something out" refers to bringing it out into the open, as in a dog chasing game for hunters to shoot at.
