Building Social Capital When You Work Remotely
Aliza Licht | Harvard Business Review
While social capital has always been integral to collaboration at work, it is essential for every hybrid and remote employee and for solo entrepreneurs. Since this work has rendered many of these employees less visible, it has become non-negotiable for these employees to invest in their own interpersonal relationships
The $500 billion ‘Office real estate apocalypse’: Researchers find remote work’s effect even worse than expected
Alena Botros | Fortune
The pandemic spurred work-from-home era is decimating the office sector, with rising vacancy rates and declining property values.
How some people get away with doing nothing at work
Emily Stewart | Vox
Reporting for this story, I spoke with multiple people who are essentially funemployed, or at least one meaning of it, who sit around at work all day with very little to do. What was most surprising was that many did not exactly love the situation and felt somewhat conflicted.
Remote Work Does A Body Good

Streets Of Toronto
Remote work lovers, you’ve come to the right place — Toronto was just ranked one of the top 10 cities in the world for “creative digital nomads” to work.
How do you not take criticism of your work personally?
molly0 | Hacker News
I’ve come to realize that I often take constructive criticisms personally. Everything from an unintentionally snarky comment in a PR I’ve made to someone highlight a mistake I’ve made that I probably couldn’t have known about.
I see this as one of my major flaws and try hard to mask how I feel. But I just hope to learn to stop feeling bad for honest mistakes.
When digital nomads come to town
Stephen Witt | Rest of World
Cities from Canggu to Medellín are welcoming tech workers, but locals complain they’re being priced out.
