The word ‘remote’ can mean disconnected, unfriendly, or distant, but it doesn’t have to feel that way. Thanks to the tools we have, working remotely is now not only possible, for some, it’s preferred.
No more rolling into the office at 9am after pouring coffee all over your trousers in the car. No more ‘can you stay an extra couple of hours tonight’, then leaving red-eyed and drained. But, sadly, no physical, interpersonal connections. It’s harder to make friends with someone you’ve never met.
That means we need a substitute.
