What I hate most about working remotely is how teams are gradually dehumanized, until your colleagues are just avatars you exchange tasks and work results with, because small talk, and body language are out of the picture.

Have you asked a colleague how they're doing today?

I’ve been having so much fun learning how to use a sewing machine and making masks for friends 🙃

The best birthday wishes are the weirdest: “Happy birthday, btw today it’s also been 10 years we had a war against a pigeon.” 🤷🏻‍♀️😍

Dudes trying to make other people's research about themselves really make me want to go in full troll mode 🤦🏻‍♀️

Why do adult men in parks need to practice their loud hobby like they’re alone?

I've been focusing so much on organizing our 6th @prototypefund@twitter.com Demo Day that I've totally forgotten to announce that, of course, Net Politics Salon will happen on Thursday, February 27th, 8pm, at Room 77 - like every Thursday of the month. Join us <3

(This is how @lemondefr@twitter.com @LaMatinale_M@twitter.com seriously illustrated their article about “Chaos Communication Camp” in December in Leipzig. People dressed in white, walking outdoors. 🤦🏻‍♀️)

But you can't start a discussion like this if you don't even show some willingness to understand what the culture at Congress is about.

Saying this as someone who worked in journalism, with journalists and trained journalists: Respect the communities you report on.
