Hmm, I think I'm going to disagree to some extent, or at least in many situations. Teams/Zoom has become the norm for more than laziness. I believe it may be over the top if the participants are all close to each other in the same building, on the same floor, and a conference room is handy, but in most other cases, not so much.

- If any user is remote and on teams, then all should be. Most conference rooms don't have the advanced 'speaker based' camera systems so it can be hard to tell who's talking and sometimes they may not even be totally visible.
- If anyone has to travel more than a few minutes, the time lost even without counting any social time that may come up, can be substantial.
- Some meetings are not that active and I've gotten lots of work done just lurking. In other cases, I can write some notes or even outline a code block of the discussion during the meeting. I have all the tools right in front of me and although I can bring a tablet or laptop to a meeting, it's not the same thing. Is being head down in your laptop any different than an online meeting?
- Again to time, online meetings tend to start and end on time. Sure, there are exceptions. So the hour you block out for the meeting is generally pretty close to an hour.

I'm a social person and like in-person meetings but in review of pre and post pandemic, most in-person meetings added time due to both the social piece and inefficiency.
