Bad connection


mental health protection

Take back control of Zoom meetings.

Offline communication has evolved over thousands of years. Collectively we've developed thousands of ways to get out of unwanted social situaions: To politely indicate someone is talking too much or wasting everyone's time.

Social Cues

That's much harder online- the tools are too crude to pick up on the all the subtleties of tone and body-language that say:

"You need to shut up".

In an always-on world of constant contact excuses are hard to come by - it's not like you've got somewhere to be.

So what to do? How to cut short the motormouth boss? get out of the pointless meeting? avoid the weird relative?

Fight Back

Bufferi.ng gives you a simple way to stutter your webcam and distort the sound

A True Story

Every morning my friend walked past a security guard.

He was guarding a small, nondescript gate and would shout and scream at any car, person or dog who got near it.

None of the other security personnel were like this, despite having more important jobs.

This fastidious guard knocked-off work at 6pm and was replaced by a...

The moral of the story:

The more useless your job,

The busier you need to appear.

What's this got to do with W.F.H and Zoom?

Working from home has increased productivity and job satisfaction for many.


Many managers are becoming obsolete as workers self direct and coordinate projects online. They need to show they are essential and are creating busy work:

So now we have a glut of useless, soul crushing meetings

That's why I created bufferi.ng. Now you can control when your camera lags and stutters and cut your sound out.

How to use Bufferi.ng
Three easy steps

  1. 1) First, you need to install a piece of software called SnapCamϊ on your pc/mac.
  2. Snapcam is made by Snapchat and is free to download. You don't need a Snapchat account

  3. 2) Once it's up and running search for the Buffering lens
  4. The lens will take a few seconds to load

  5. 3) Open SnapCam before your video conference.
  6. It works with Zoom, Microsoft teams, Skype and any videoconference software that uses your computer's camera.
