Spoke my mind there. Agree with all of it. Remote working has its advantages and disadvantages. The major disadvantage I see I have had while working remotely for past 7 years is not making enough connections, being able to verbally speak to peers and discuss ideas. Its mostly a robotic conversation where a client lays out their requirements and you go on to make them as close as possible to the requirements. Having peers and discussing ideas before working on them is not just beneficial but healthy as well. Human to human relation is largely missed during remote work. Great article!
