Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Cal Newport | The New Yorker
Companies must move away from surveillance and visible busyness, and toward defined outcomes and trust.
David Kushner | Business Insider
Millions of millennials, freed from their desk jobs, are working remotely in places like Mexico — and leaving a path of destruction in their wake.
Henry Grabar | Slate Magazine
“This really is a critical moment. What comes next in the next three to six months could be the start of defining what happens in the next 10 to 20 years, or the next generation. And I have to say we’re all over the place.”
Anne Helen Petersen | Culture Study
This is the principle at the heart of the four day week: working less can actually mean working better. That idea is particularly difficult for Americans, who fetishize long hours for many ideologically tangled reasons, to understand. It’s true in knowledge work, it’s true in medical fields, it’s true in construction. You’re just a better worker — a safer worker, a more creative worker, a more astute and alert worker — when you’re not exhausted.
Greg Rosalsky | NPR
With so many Silicon Valley companies saying employees no longer have to work in Silicon Valley offices, are we witnessing the remaking of America’s economic map? A leading expert on economic geography doesn’t think so.

A whopping 40% of college students and recent graduates prefer fully in-person work, according to a new poll by Generation Lab, a polling and research firm that tracks trends affecting youth.
Another 39% want a hybrid workplace, 19% want to work remotely and 3% say they have no preference.
According to the latest figures from the FAA, in the year to July 6th it has launched 540 investigations into unruly behaviour by passengers, more than three times the number for the whole of 2019. That is despite there being only around 40% the number of travellers aboard America’s planes.
