      Thanks, Alda :)
      A few months back, Facebook also launched a VR platform called Infinite Office. So, yes, this is an interesting space to watch.ย

          Can totally relate ๐Ÿ˜…. Guessing anti-fog glasses would be a good solution to this

          1. 1

            So basically it's a feature, not a bug?

              I planned to launch a newsletter called Working Sane, a daily productivity tip for remote work, on SubStack. I'm wondering if I should launch it on Revue now? Any thoughts?

              1. 1

                Hey Ramon, great website and I really liked the content about productivity.ย 

                Both Substack and Revue offer powerful editors for creating newsletters. Would prefer Revue as it allows easy curation of newsletters through integration with social sources such as Twitter and Facebook.

                Revue offers all the premium features for free and charges only a fee of 5% on paid newsletters, while Substack charges 10%.

                    Hey Ashish,ย 

                    Gumroad & Basecamp provide equal pay irrespective of location. You can check out the detailed post here.

                    1. 2

                      I hadn't thought about it but it makes total sense. I know many people who are already moving from crowded cities (mainly from the US and mostly to places in Mexico or less crowded US states like Hawaii) and also many who are considering the remote working from a faraway beach dream :)

                      As for travel, the fact that there are fewer people going around an Airbnb building than a hotel definitely has some influence here, as we are all going to have to keep some social distancing in mind for good. On the other hand, I think hostels that have shared rooms, for example, are pretty much doomed. Curious to see what they will do to adapt...

                      1. 2

                        Good point, Alda. Airbnbs are better suited for remote workers on the go as it allows people to get to know their hosts more and experience local events & activities- something hotels lack.

                        Although hotels are still an attractive option, those looking for a longer stay (a couple of months) may prefer Airbnbโ€™s. Recently, Airbnb also introduced long-term stays for people looking for stays for more than a month.

                      1. 3

                        You know you can bet on these guys as they continue to adapt to every obstacle thrown in their way. Insane

                        1. 3

                          That is so true! My favorite part was when they sold cereal in presidential candidate themed boxes to fund Airbnb in 2008.ย 

                          1. 1

                            Yes. Exactly!

                          Hey @anil-989, @kishoraditya, @divyanshunegi-961 ๐Ÿ‘‹

                          It's great to have you guys on board!
                          Let's get to know each other a little better- what do you think is the best part of working remotely?

                          1. 2

                            Hey everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹ What do you think is the best part of working remotely?

                            1. 3

                              Thanks for sharing! Have upvoted on Product Hunt :)

                              1. 2

                                Thanks a lot!

                              1. 2

                                Previously SalesForce bought another piece of "friendly" enterprise software, namely Quip. It's a pretty good tool, and it had quite a buzz about it when SalesForce bought it. But it's since stagnated and Notion has come rushing past it to be the darling of "Google docs killers".

                                I'm just hoping that post acquisition Slack is run as an independent subsidiary else I fear the same thing will happen. Depsite the fact that it annoys me at times, Slack is still one of my favorite SaaS tools I use everyday. It showed us that SaaS tools don't need to be boring enterprise things. They can appeal to our fun side as well and still help us get things done.

                                ย 

                                1. 1

                                  Well said, I agree with your points on why Slack should be an independent entity. According to the deal, Slack will become an operating unit of Salesforce and be led by CEO Stewart Butterfield.

                                1. 2

                                  Salesforce may find it difficult to compete with Microsoft Teams but for sure the acquisition will boost Slack profitability.

                                  90% of enterprise/corporate organization already use 1 or 2 Microsoft product so is a big edge Microsoft has in the market. Organizations find it easier to migrate to Teams more than any other product.

                                  1. 1

                                    Good point, Emeka. Salesforce also is also known for its strong enterprise partnerships as almost 90% of Fortune 500 companies use Salesforce. If Salesforce is able to convert them to paid subscribers, it would surely drive profitability for Slack.

                                  1. 1

                                    Sure, Calix. Completed the form.

                                        Like every other innovation, Remote work also has its own both benefits and drawbacks. But at this moment it surely isnโ€™t hurting the federal govt. to impose a 5% tax on people working from home. ย It is not an undesirable activity to be curtailed by prohibitive taxation.

                                        Researcher Luke Templeman said that remote workers are contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy whilst still receiving its benefits.

                                        Although, I completely understand the argument that the report has put forward i.e addressing the imbalance between the remote workers and people who canโ€™t work from home.ย 

                                        I feel people who aren't able to work from home would be better off with essential reforms such as increasing minimum wage, providing equal pay, fostering an inclusive work environment, and providing employee health benefits rather than by giving grants.ย 

                                        Also, with Deutsche Bank holding a large number of vacant office buildings, it is now apparent why Templeman is suddenly concerned about getting people back to offices.

                                        A better logical method would be a tax that could be levied by the cities and states losing workers to telework. Instead, he suggests a federal tax designed to strip away the financial benefit of remote work, confiscating employeesโ€™ savings by staying at home.

                                        Powerful institutions are going to come up with various methods to get people back to the offices and this seems to be one of them.

                                        And finally, imposing a penalty for being able to work remotely is just unacceptable. ๐Ÿ˜ค
