In Issue 5, I shared a report on the State of Remote Work (2019). Here is a post by Steph Smith on Best Practices for Managing Remote Teams: A Psychological Perspective and another very interesting post by Leo Widrich (ex Buffer) on How remote work may impact our brains and what to do about it (inspired by this tweet by Ryan Hoover of ProductHunt). Also see Ryan’s post The Problems in Remote Working. #posts


Basically, it all comes down to respecting your coworkers’ time. Don’t waste it, and they won’t hate you—at least not because of your Slack etiquette.
