Meetings Are Dead

Stop wasting time on pointless video meetings right now!

No more video meetings

Homeoffice is great. But having all those video calls is making people unproductive.
Use video calls for creative meetings, like brainstorming. Use GoMAD on problem-solving instead.

With GoMAD(Meetings Are Dead) you can assign real tasks and problems to relevant people, while others can continue their work.
Those selected people will WRITE their opinion and let others know when they are done. Listen to your domain experts!

The correct decision is made by voting at the end of the meeting by all participants.

In the end, everyone gets their meeting notes in their email.


Power to the people

It is easier for everyone to vote for an opinion than saying their own out loud.

When people read selected expert opinions, it is easier for them to say which one they agree with.

Lots of good opinions go to waste by using video calls, because of the natural way people think. Afraid or shy to express themselves.

Voting is the basic pillar of democracy. Be wise and use it right.

Why not give it a try? No registration is needed.

What are the most common problems people face when using too many video calls?

Excessive Eye Contact

Online video conferences lead to unnatural amounts of eye contact. Everyone is looking at everyone all the time, which is in contrast to a traditional meeting where there’s different things to focus on. Therefore the experience is said to trigger the anxiety of public speaking even when a person is not actively speaking.

Constantly Seeing Yourself

It’s unnatural to see oneself at all times when speaking to another person, but that’s what’s occurring during Zoom alls. Zoom, and most video conferencing platforms, show a square of your camera feed at the bottom of the screen during a chat. “In the real world, if somebody was following you around with a mirror constantly – so that while you were talking to people, making decisions, giving feedback, getting feedback – you were seeing yourself in a mirror, that would just be crazy. No one would ever consider that.”

Reduction of Mobility

Zoom calls unnaturally reduce peoples’ mobility by forcing them to stay within a field of view. Whereas people would be able to freely walk around and move during in-person and audio-only conversations.

Higher Cognitive Load

Natural nonverbal cues, such as gestures and body language, are difficult to interpret during video calls which means the brain has to work harder to send and receive signals.Read more – Source

Gaze awareness

In person, when two or more people are having a conversation, eye contact is made. On a video call, people also want to look into the eyes of the person they are speaking with. However, the camera is not located in the same place as the person they are talking to.

This computer hardware fact means that people will always look like they are looking elsewhere, despite their best attempts at making eye contact.

Limited attention

In a meeting in the office, a person may doodle; they may look out of the window or look around the room. These things may be slightly rude normally but might appear even ruder in a video call scenario.

Technical issues

There are also many technical problems that can occur through the use of video calls that would not be present in real life meetings. Internet speed can be interrupted or slow, causing lag. This means that a person may end up frozen on the screen or unable to be heard by others.

Performance pressure

In a video call, more so than a face-to-face conversation, people are very aware that others are watching them. This self-awareness can lead to people feeling as if they have to portray themselves in a certain way that is not the case in meetings in the office. Keeping up a high level of performance on screen can be tiring and lead to video call fatigue.
