Not all leaders believe #returntooffice is the right move. But #remotework 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! 💪

👋 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 #WordPress 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?
NEW: Tumblr and Wordpress are preparing to sell user data to Midjourney and OpenAI, according to internal documentation we've reviewed

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. #writing
@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 (https://abookapart.com/products/accessibility-for-everyone) and her talk on building tech that respects our rights https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F5CvwioUy40
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. https://virtualnotdistant.com #ai
