Our team members prefer just walking over to a colleague’s desk to address whatever is on their mind.
Why our company’s remote work system failed
Ben Cheng

Unfortunately these impromptu conversations tend to be too frequent in a physical office and it’s hard to get anything done, unless you explicitly start ignoring people or lock yourself in a room somewhere. Remote work solves that.

But it solves it, at the expense of an increase in loneliness. I think the ideal situation would be to have the best of both worlds: setup the work environment as if everybody was distributed in order to let people work remotely when they want.
