I knew nothing about Zoom until a few weeks ago, but everything I've 
read since is impressive.

And as both technologists and citizens, in addition to what Zoom is, 
also valuable is what they're not: not Google Hangouts, not Apple 
FaceTime, not Microsoft Teams, etc.  A startup this successful outside 
the Big Five is helpful for everyone, and devs in particular. Developers 
thrive in diverse and fluid ecosystems.

And did you notice Zoom's API docs?

I've only started reading them, but the functionality seems like a very 
empowering compliment to LC's GUI capabilities, esp. for integrating 
with other services an organization may need.
