We’re near the end of our Lync roll-out/deployment now, with our last practice group going live this morning. The system defaults include using your employee ID photo as your on-screen persona. You can change this, of course, so I selected a photo Kim snapped of me from a few years back. I’m wearing a winter hat she knit for me, a Railroad Earth hoodie, and my arms crossed..
I used this photo on the firm’s Trainers web page, which introduces all of us, so it was a no-brainer to use it for my Lync photo.
As a result, when I am training someone across the Firm, I get comments. Just today, here in NYC, I’ve had two different secretaries comment on the hat and how much they like it, to which I replied that Kim knit it.
Both immediately asked, “Is she on Ravelry?”
I laughed. My wife’s coolness trumps mine ever the day, even at work. Ravelry is a big knitting site that many knitters gravitate towards, and Kim’s been there for some time, although not as active on the forums as she once was.
