The landscape of media work environments is changing, and many organizations now allow for flexible schedules and locations, with employees spending more time in Slack than conference rooms. Along with increased freedom and flexibility, distributed work comes with its share of challenges. Being remote, even part time, requires thinking intentionally about how to communicate, structure our days, and set boundaries around work and life.
Here on the Nerds blog, we've talked about how we make remote work work. We've shared our tools and process in our extensive collection of open-source docs. Today, Source and INN are launching Remote Control, an occasional series of interviews with remote workers that explores how journalists and technologists make remote work work: what their set-ups look like, how they organize their time, and what they do in the face of frustrations. We hope to collect honest portrayals of our modern working life and learn from each other in the process.
