Thanks Bettina Fliegel ! My daughter usually zooms, gchats, and facetimes with friends throughout the day. But a lot of that takes planning, and they are not conducive to impromptu chatting and hanging out. I love the idea of a stoop club or backyard hang! Not sure how much we will be able to do this while shelter-in-place orders are in effect but that's the kind of environment I'd love to create

Thanks for the comment and thoughtful question, David! I think in order for a virtual cafeteria to scale, it will require a combination of buy-in from school administrators and a delightful user experience. The school has to sanction the virtual lunch time so that students know to sign up, but they won’t want to use it if it’s not fun :) not totally sure how to achieve these goals, but that’s my initial thinking
