Discussion Summary

For those who find that time passes slowly during the Covid shutdown, the San Francisco explorers discuss the apps, websites and other things they find useful to to fight boredom. Steve recommends the variety of video entertainment programming available on Amazon Prime Video. That leads to a list of suggestions from the group, including: 

  • You Tube (where Judy found the film Rocketman)
  • San Francisco Public Library's YouTube channel
  • Archive.org - for movies, books, and papers 
  • Words with Friends - an online video game which can be played in real time or paused between turns.

Hartmut recommends using LightRoom by Adobe to archive and organize one's collection of photos (including the facial recognition and search functions). The group has an interesting discussion about this activity after learning the variety of interesting ways that a large collection of one's photos can be arrayed and even made into memorabilia such as books. Obviously, there are ample apps to counteract boredom during the downtime of sheltering in place.
