Silly Season: Room Rater creates aesthetic scale for Skype/Zoom backgrounds

Room Rater is now being used as a throwaway line for happy-talk television, so this Twitter site that rates the backgrounds we use for our Skype/Zoom conversations now draws our attention. The reality is that most backgrounds are just that, even as their detail is a measure of the quality of the discourse.

The pair of folks ranking them on a 10/10 scale at least allows us some sense of taste in a tasteless symptom of COVID-19. “Covid Cabin” will be a meme.
