DHH tears apart Microsoft’s ridiculous marketing campaign for Office365, which glorifies working in places like the bathroom, at your kid’s recital, and on vacation:
Remote work is not about working more hours in more places. It’s not about invading every crevasse of your life and stuffing it full of work, work, work. Au contraire, mon ami. It’s about spending the hours of work more productively, and then having more time free from its tentacles.
Of course family isn’t important. This is coming from the guy who built Ruby on Rails and runs a very successful company among many other things.
