It’s hard not to love Gilda Radner or SNL. And I’ll go one step further: for me, it’s impossible not to love Emily Litella. She never understood why people made such a fuss over things.
In 2015, I think Emily would be asking what all the fuss is about remote working (or maybe she’d ask what the fuss is about demote twerking…hint: you need to watch those episodes to understand).
Distributed teams really got their legs with the advent of open source projects and are becoming increasingly mainstream…but are not without their drama. My short presentation at yesterday’s always-awesome Forward 2 conference dispels some common fears and myths about remote work, and provides some tips on making distributed teams awesome. Enjoy!
