    Any thoughts on entire teams that are (variably) partially remote and partially in-office?

      I'm currently in a (mostly) 4 day remote, 1 day in office team, and one person relocated so they are fully remote and it makes things difficult since there was a system that allowed some face time and some grind time.

        So much is lost in Slack / chat in terms of tone and personality, I just wonder what it's like for teams that primarily communicate this way and their relationships.

          I have the same curiosity. I talk to people who genuinely love it so I’m sure I’m wrong in making a uniform criticism. But my feeling is that teams need a contingent in locations otherwise it’s lonely and inefficient. Those working remote lose so much from being near others; and often they don’t even know what they’re missing.

          It’s funny to me that on one side we hear so much about the importance of geography in how it breeds innovation in ecosystems like SV and now Austin. So if that’s true then how can remote teams be better than co-located?
