Quartz: “The investment in Redmond also assumes workers will be be using offices in the future, when it’s clear many won’t. When given the choice of working remotely, many workers opt to stay home (or find a nearby coffeeshop), to the extent that Automattic, maker of Wordpress, shut down its San Francisco office because no one was using it.”
This is from a late 2017 article. Clearly folks have wanted to work remotely for quite a while. COVID-19 has definitely driven that point home, no pun intended.
I’ll continue to advocate for it.
