Remote work opens the option for nomad life, but it also adds the option for the exact opposite... Settling down. Instead of constantly moving for the best job offer you can: • Stay • Put down roots • Build closer connections • Get involved in your community

The pandemic made evident how much work can, and should, be different. The forced change to accommodate remote workflows also brought to light what I like to call “virtual offices”. Unlike truly remote friendly workplaces optimized for asynchronous communication, these aim to merely transport the office into a virtual space keeping the same unnecessary constraints of synchronous work intact, only replacing shoulder taps with Zoom calls. I’d love if we collectively agreed to start using a more appropriate name for these. They are office-less companies but they are not remote-friendly.

it's interesting that a full 2+ years into remote work for many organizations, we are still framing this as "how do we replicate the ceremonies and customs of the office, online" and not "what new things might we try to unlock the full benefits of this way of working".

Remote for almost 2 years? Ain’t nobody tryin to work in an office ever again and deal with micro aggressions, shady ass coworkers, the person who wants to stand at your desk and gossip, interoffice politics, and commuting in the cold, NOPE

You may not be expecting it, but this is how a Director presents themself. Please adjust your expectations as necessary. twitter.com/iancoldwater/s…

There is something so creepy about being invited to Zoom events where they offer an Uber Eats or GrubHub credit. It's like, "Stay safely at home, while servants cook and delivers your food, taking all risk for you." Risk offloaded onto the viral underclass. For my comfort.

Let’s see, list of things I’m losing out on: • Office politics and gossip • Micro management and aggressions List of things I’ve gained: • Complete freedom of my whole day • No commute • Actual focus time to be productive We young people are good ✌🏼twitter.com/cnbc/status/14…

Also, meetings with me now come with a bonus live dog cam. Dog presence not guaranteed.
Post detailsAlright now that i'm full-time permanently remote for the long term I decided it was finally time to start using my DSLR camera that I use for videos as my actual webcam. 10/10 would recommend! shout out to @HandMirrorApp for a quick cam check before going on zoom 💅

Some really interesting things about how to handle a timezone-distributed team, but also some interesting ideas about hybrid/remote teams and building up a better social and human time.

OK, this is going to sound like one of those awful Chat Magazine Top Tips… My home office has laminate flooring & it is cold. I've taken a toilet mat & put it under my desk! Now my feet stay warm and my chair doesn't get caught on the carpet. What's your top home-office hack?

meetings on remote teams are hard. we get caught between two conflicting feelings: 1. “I don’t like meetings” 2. “I feel disconnected from my team” I’m increasingly convinced that many (most?) remote teams are having on the wrong kind of meetings (a meetings thread, I guess)
