Why the hell isn't remote work the default in tech? I'm seriously at a loss. It's 2020. We can do this. I know we wanted flying cars, but seriously, I'd much rather have remote work. No commutes. Live anywhere (i.e. affordable cost of living). Sanity. Why isn't it happening?

My heart kind of stops every time I see someone else building a writing app. There are 7.5 billion people on earth, Corey. Chill.
@jborichevskiy "Tooling" isn't the problem nor is culture. I’ve been collaborating on the internet with strangers for 20 years — IRC to AIM to TeamSpeak to GChat to Slack. We had culture. We got things done. I think what's missing is trust and guts.
@bkrudy I'm just envisioning this future where companies now hire talent from anywhere. And now local economies are booming as professionals work from local spaces, businesses, etc. I certainly don't discount the value of presence and being together, but we can collaborate online.
@Ezekiel_Martini I had the fortune to explore building such a solution. Absolutely loved working in @BigscreenVR — undeniable the value of presence being w someone halfway around the world. It can be done today but cost + wearing a headset for longer two hours every day is silly. One day! 🤞
@kirbycosmosis Working remotely would be lonely if it weren't for the fellow freelancers I meet up and work with. And I don't deny the improved communication bandwidth achieved with presence. But the capacity + benefits of remote, to literally the world, far outweigh requiring residence.
Why aren't more careers pages run like marketing sites? - Capture email address of prospective candidates - Marketing automation campaigns for candidate engagement - "Launch style" marketing for open roles with a countdown Seems obvious with rising cost per hire
