@PredictIt, I signed up for your platform yesterday!

How do I propose a new market #prediction wager?
- I say @JoeBiden wins #Election2020,
BUT @realDonaldTrump will squat the @WhiteHouse,
& Biden operates as President, externally.

@FiveThirtyEight @voxdotcom
#DataScience
Remember, its all about holding mega real estate and projecting strong images for @realDonaldTrump.
All the #proudboys #altright #cryptofacistis supporters will arm-up and occupy the @WhiteHouse lawns to protect @realDonaldTrump from building eviction. Those camped out will linger for ~ 1 year until they realized they are hungry and aren't being paid for their efforts.

Item #3 for building back better
#DIGITIZATION

We are unlikely to return to the same state of the world as when we entered the #pandemic, nor is this desirable. #Remoteworking has the potential to become more prevalent after the crisis.

Investments might shift from face-to-face working (and lower the cost of #officerealestate and time for #commuting).

#Stimulus spending should focus investments on the enablers of this new approach to work, e.g., #5G rollouts, #broadband infrastructure, #satellites for global reach, server farms for adequate capacity, etc, all with effective #privacy protection.

I seem to always read/mistake WFH as WTF or WTH. Turns out I'm not alone in this and many others read it that way too, before getting it right seconds later. For something that we're all thrust into without much choice (not me - I have been WFH since April 2018, ever since I 1/4

Pilita lays out the landscape very well, with GitLab as an example of how to get it right, and why companies should not just jump into it headlong.

There is a serious discussion happening internally in Indian IT industry to let employees work in tier 2 tier 3 towns ask them to take a lower salary & permanently work from home.

असे झाले तर,

- शहरीकरणाचा वेग मंदावेल
- पुण्या-मुंबईतील गर्दी कमी होईल
- छोट्या शहराचा विकास होईल
This is disruption by #COVID & would be huge setback for following sectors:

1) Real estate (Commercial & Residential)
2) Automobile
3) Cab aggregators
4) BFSI - Home Loans
5) many more.....
What enabled #remoteworking revolution

1) 4G Rollout by Jio, Vi & Airtel
2) Cheapest data rates in the world
3) Affordable computing devices
4) Improved power supply across states
5) Evolution of apps like Teams, Meet & Zoom

#TheRemoteWorkingChronicles

Ryan (@rwilcox) has been a remote developer for 15 years and works as a lead engineer now, leading like @StarTrek's Chief O'Brien 😎

His story is an example that almost everything can be accomplished #remote

THREAD 👇
Let's get to know Ryan:

- Professional developer for ~15 years 😃
- Mostly worked remotely, except for a couple stints
- Lead engineer for a mid-sized replatforming project
- His work shuffles between architectural positions as well as hands-on coding 🔀
Motivation?

After college, he decided to go into consulting, moved back home, and leaned heavily on remote work to get clients.

"Remote work is a great economic equalizer, giving a larger range of opportunities anywhere to people from anywhere 💯"

I’m bemused that there seems to be so much lamentation over “distance” with the possibility of more #remoteworking and #whf in the future. It can be done. It’s already done by companies with multiple offices and people working across borders. Human connection IS possible.
It takes longer, it requires a different type of investment but I’ve worked for five years with people in other offices without any issue and I have deep meaningful connections with colleagues halfway across the world.
If your company relies mainly on physical presence for collaboration then something is very wrong in how you deploy collaborative techniques and a sense of belonging to the same company trying to achieve the same vision.

Yesterday I sat in on an excellent (booked out) #economics webinar with expert input from Dr Carolina Alves, Prof Stephen Kinsella and Dr. Catriona Cahill examining the impact of #COVID19 on UK and IRE.

#BusinessIntelligence
#recovery
#economicresponse

Here are my notes!
Short sharp shocks: It's important to separate the 'scenarios' from the 'forecasts'. The first is narrative-based! We are assuming a short, sharp shock. Short - (a quarter); sharp (as seen in unemployment figures); and a shock - this wasn't predicted.
One key differentiator in this crisis is that there is no one entity to blame. Not bad banks, or bondholders. We really are all in this together.

This week has seen us working 100% remotely and assisting our clients with business continuity. Here are some tips for #RemoteWorking during these unprecedented times...

#EasyRemoteWorking #covid19 #covid19uk #coronavirus #workingfromhome #stayathome #quarantine #staypositive
1. Take regular breaks
Screen sharing & conference calls can be much more tiring than being face to face. There's more load on your brain filling in the blanks created by not seeing the people you're interacting with. Tip: try the #PomodoroTechnique
2. Use Video in your conference calls
Non-verbal cues are used in face to face communication. We gesture to indicate a desire to speak, we nod, we shake our head or look confused. People adapt communication from these, so we're better placed to leave with a shared understanding.

[THREAD]

So, your company just told you it’s time to #workfromhome for a while due to #coronavirus. First, #remoteworking isn’t that scary. In fact, you might actually find you’re more productive than sitting in an office.

Of course, there are a few things you should know:
First, pick a place to land. Especially if you’re going to be #remoteworking for more than a day or two. It doesn’t mean you have to spend all your time there, but having a desk and a chair to land in when you need to hunker down and get work done can make all the difference.
One of the reasons why is that it gives you a mental cue that “here’s your spot, this is where you do work.” Don’t underestimate what a big deal that can be, especially if you’re used to having an office or a desk.

I know a ton of us are #workingremotely right now. I'm sending 🤗to you all as we navigate these scary times with #coronavirus.

I wanted to share some "Video Meeting Basics" in case you're new to working remotely or doing video calls.

(thread ...)
1) Use "whole body listening". Use your eyes, ears and posture to show you're listening.

#workingfromhome
2) If you're typing, explain why at the beginning of the meeting by saying "I want everyone to know I'm actively listening. If you see me typing, it's because I'm taking notes."

Some folks may be #RemoteWorking for the first time for an extended period, let me give you some hints and tips. I've been working from home for the majority of my career and have learnt a few things, please feel free to RT/share your experiences - a rambling thread (1/n)
1. Clock on/clock off. It's very easy for the working day to consume every waking hour. Just because you are working from home doesn't mean work should become your life. Stick to your normal working hours.
2. Have a lunch break. It's easy to just eat and work, but you aren't getting a lunch break then. It will feel strange, but leave your workstation and watch TV, or go for a walk - use the lunch break to get away from work. And take it fully!

A lot of advice going around for people new to #remoteworking. But I’ve seen very little advice for managers, so here’s a small thread on *managing* remote teams for anyone new to it amid the #coronavirus / #covid19 situation...
Be intentional. You can't rely on ad-hoc office chit-chat to stay on top things. Have regular check-ins and catch-ups with your team.
Cameras on. It feels really weird at first, but being able to see people helps to maintain social bonds and provides useful clues for when people are want to speak and so on.

State of Remote Work 2020 📊

We reached out to 331 remote workers from @InVisionApp, @ScrapingHub, @flexjobs, @doist & @gitlab, as well as independent professionals, who shared their thoughts around a multitude of topics.

Here's what they have to say 🗣

Thread 👇
82% said no plans to return to an in-office setting 👩‍💻

Irrespective of the reason to explore remote work, this reflects the convenience it offers to individuals and how offering remote working opportunities might immediately make a company much more favourable to applicants.
Everyone would recommend remote work to others! 👬

However, 35% said they would do so depending on the person they were recommending it to. This underlines the importance that remote working might not be for everyone or for every situation.
