Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Ed Zitron | Ed Zitron's Where's Your Ed At
Furthermore, the remote environment has taken away their favorite thing to do - feel like they’re the King or Queen of their office, stomping around and “controlling” things. It’s so much less fun being a hashtag boss when you don’t get to see everybody, and say stuff to them and see them carry it out. I sound as if I’m joking, but I 100% believe that a lot of founders and CEOs operate in this way - and remote work disconnected them from their own ability to lightly bully those they pay.
Leah Fessler | The New York Times
When office closures put physical distance between colleagues, many hoped that incidents of harassment would drop. That flame quickly went dark.
Kerry Cavanaugh | Los Angeles Times
If we want humane workplaces that support caregivers and allow individuals to live their best lives, the remote-work option should become permanent.

I’m increasingly finding “being on the same page” and communicating “what needs to be done, why, and sometimes how” harder and harder when we’re all in various time zones and increasingly working asynchronously.
What has your experience been in this past year? What has been frustrating? What has got the best of you? What do you wish for?
Zoe Schiffer | The Verge
Apple employees are pushing back against a new policy that would require them to return to the office three days a week starting in early September. Staff members say they want a flexible approach where those who want to work remote can do so, according to an internal letter obtained by The Verge.

Let’s get real about the actual prospects of making this plan work. We know some people pull it off. Everyone else? Not a chance. See, a global economy can’t support millions upon millions of people jetting around the world and running businesses online. There will always be a sub-class of people working constantly behind the scenes, in sweatshops and kitchens, in order to sustain this dream lifestyle for a tiny few.
Don’t let these videoconferencing mistakes be a stumbling block for a potential employer.
If you want to go back to the office, nobody is stopping you. But you should not step on the rest of us.
