Daily Note

March 11, 2024

One the surprising benefits of working remotely for the past 5 years my renewed appreciation for community. Specifically community that has no ties to my employment, and barely any ties to the tech community. It has been liberating to spend so much of my time with people who do not exist within the tech bubble. It has made me a far more tolerant and social person, and I find myself far less wrapped up in the daily prattle that comes out of the tech news industry. It has made me more aware of my local community, and I find myself with a much healthier boundary between work and the rest of my life. I suspect some of this is just get older, but having my work life be contained to a tiny home office space and nowhere else has certainly made the rest of the world more interesting.
