Hand-picked articles, stories and ideas from the remote work community and beyond.
Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying that remote work, or even hybrid works for everyone. Personally, I live near Intercom HQ and actually enjoy going into the office. I love jumping into a meeting room and whiteboarding an idea with a teammate. But crucially, how much time I spend in the office is my choice.
But there seems to be this returning perspective in the tech industry that remote work isn’t a fairly standard work practice, but is instead something that is a gift to employees. A privilege to be earned. A perk to bestow upon the most deserving.
Emma Court, Donna Borak | Bloomberg
Three years into the pandemic, business leaders and city officials around the world are still trying just about everything to lure employees back into offices and revive local economies. But new data on in-person work analyzed by Bloomberg News show that in a number of cities across the US, Fridays at the office are dead. Mondays are a crapshoot. And returning to pre-pandemic work schedules looks like a lost cause.

The office expenses I’ve saved on since 2005 have come at the expense of my company’s culture.
Rowena Hennigan | Harvard Business Review
If you could work from anywhere, where would you go? For more and more people, it’s not a hypothetical question: Young or old, single or with a family, full-time employee or contractor, the digital nomad life is more accessible than ever before. But of course, becoming a digital nomad isn’t without its challenges and risks.
I craved more, and I was willing to go as far as it takes. I wanted to solve productivity top down—with a system that would enforce non stop productivity with zero effort on my part.

It’s been already 9 months and 10,000 kilometers we are living across Japan in our small camper van. We are a mixed couple (European/Japanese) with a 1 year and a half kid. As a lot of people are curious about our experience, I’ll try to cover everything you might want to know before getting into van life in Japan or renting a camper to visit the country.
