Remote Work Round-Up

November 9, 2017

Cheddar and WeWork recently announced they'll be teaming up to create remote studio space in 5-10 locations across the country, beginning in 2018, according to Axiom's The Future of Work column.

Writer Sara Fischer notes:

"Cheddar is joining forces with WeWork to scale its on-air guest booking operation. It's building remote studios in WeWork offices around the country, and eventually around the globe, to bring more TV-quality live shots to the network's weekday live programming slate. The Cheddar team will go live with its first-ever daily broadcast from a WeWork location today in Hollywood."

This leaves us wondering, as technology rapidly improves, are home studios around the bend? And if many of the personnel working from remote studios are working in an on-air booking capacity, would't they inevitably be able to do so from the comfort of their own home, coffee shop, beach bungalow, etc...?

In the era of the citizen journalist, Facebook Live and $1,000 iPhone X, we surmise this can't be far behind - and truly, most people will have the capability to do nearly any job from any location, should they choose to. Only time, technology and cultural norms can tell (but our fingers are crossed for the affirmative).

And while we're on the topic of Cheddar, check out PowerToFly's cofounder and president, Katharine Zaleski, on her appearance this week discussing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.
