Not all leaders believe is the right move. But often comes with operational, social, and structural challenges. The lack of accepted patterns of interaction can make remote work confusing and isolating.

The course Jim Benson and I have developed, "Successful Distributed Teams," is here to change that! 💪

I'm hiring a developer at @Discourse. Experience in Ruby on Rails and/or Ember is a plus. We're all remote at Discourse but this job posting is only for candidates in the Americas.

👋 Howdy! I'm the Director of Product Engineering for the group that includes the Jetpack plugin and Jetpack things like our data sync.

I totally understand the concern regarding the news yesterday about Automattic's AI data handling.

Jetpack sites are not included, no matter what Jetpack features you have enabled (enhanced distribution, blaze, publicize, etc).

Only public sites/content hosted with WordPress.com (or Tumblr).

OK, I have turned every line of dialog from Office Space into a .gif, and you can now refresh it to get a new one every time! (There are 1002 .gifs! 🤯)

But why? I don’t know, why not. 🤷‍♂️ 🤣

Your team can do well in the current "weird.” Jim Benson (Personal Kanban) and I are holding a half-day workshop on getting distributed/hybrid/remote/any TEAMS to a better place. Do the right work at the right time, and feel more connection.

This will be Jim and I sharing our years of combined experience, but also leveraging the knowledge of the gathered group. We will work together to find different options and solutions for those gathered. Join us?

Several award-winning mystery/thriller writers. Satisfying suspense in the short form. Yes, I have a story in one of the issues. Back it now.

@mfowler this is why I dislike the term “remote” for distributed teams. It generates many false assumptions like “we never get to connect with colleagues”

Hey folks,

@laura is looking for a new gig after three years at Stately. She’s a designer and front-end developer who writes, gives talks, makes videos, and has been doing a fair bit of dev/design advocacy recently.

Her approach is best summed up in her book, Accessibility for Everyone (abookapart.com/products/access) and her talk on building tech that respects our rights m.youtube.com/watch?v=F5CvwioU

One of my favorite books is Susan Cain's Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. It resonated with me deeply. So I laughed when our new learning management system at Modus Institute gave me this badge recently. I guess I'm a bit more chatty online than I am in person (and always have been).

Once I was at a small hostel in Spain, and came down with a nasty cold. I asked at the desk, and they said they had a doctor on staff. He came up to my room, wrote me a prescription, fixed me right up. Later I told the guy at the desk, I was surprised such a small hostel had a doctor on staff. He just smiled and said, "Yes, nobody expects the Spanish inn physician".

(not my joke)

Look what I got in the mail from Sam Byte and Pilar Orti. Sam is actually ChatGPT. I reviewed the book (as a human) and also with Claude.ai. Listen to Pilar’s 21st Century Work-life podcast or read her newsletter to find out about her co-author experiment. virtualnotdistant.com

@mike_bowler @mlevison @gdinwiddie I decided to merge all my separate writing platforms (blog + newsletter) into one (on Ghost.io). I got tired of asking myself "why" also.
