Remote Work in 2021

Early last year, before the pandemic shut the world down, I wrote about the coronavirus and remote work. Over the course of the year, many workplaces were forced to adapt to remote operations. I suggested at the end of the piece that remote work may be only temporary, but more than a year later, it’s clearly here to stay.

While I didn’t like remote work at first, I’ve gotten use to it. I love the flexibility of being able to work from anywhere —— I can live in any city or even work in different places for short stints. I love being able to get work done when I want to. I love taking power naps during the day, something I wasn’t able to do in person.

Remote work is now the new normal. Especially in the software industry, most companies are either fully remote or hybrid.

This new trend in remote leads to interesting side effects: coworking spaces, remote work towns, the exodus of big cities, remote tools, etc.
