    Both before and after Covid, I've spent 3 to 6 hours a day on conference calls - and I've been "living" on teleconferences for over 2 decades, and so have most of my clients and coworkers. And they almost never turn on the cameras. It's distracting and soaks up valuable bandwidth. The only times there's any actual "video" on conference calls is when someone is screen-sharing - which in my line happens probably about half the time.

    I personally know of many people who work in the buff (obviously, not on camera!). A large number of my coworkers are empty-nesters.



    So don't be so quick to call BS
    I don't doubt your anecdote or how it relates to your own personal experience. However, unless I misunderstood, the percentages posted were for the population overall. I remain quite skeptical of those. Maybe they do it in order to get a quickie in during breaks?

    Forgive me and residents of Canuckistan if we scoff at your notion of winter. Actually, unless it's way below zero with high winds, our house stays warm enough that I can walk around nekid in the morning when I feed the cats and dogs. My wife, whose thermostat shattered when she turned fifty, often just wears shorts and a t-shirt.

    Shoot me if I have to spend 3-6 hours on conference calls in a workday.

    I never claimed to live in the coldest place in the world, but it's colder than where either my wife or I grew up. But heating the house to summer temperatures is expensive, even if my more tropical wife would prefer it. Victims of the economic fury, moreso than the weather. The people who built our old house apparently thought drafty was good and insulation was bad. We wear what we have to and wait for summer to come around again. No one can see or hear us in any season, as my 'antique' computer monitor lacks camera or microphone. A Zoom and Skype free existence for us.

    I bet those stats are higher now.

    I'm on conference calls with big audiences all day. It's always interesting to wonder just who's... well...
