Matt Mullenweg, one of the founders of WordPress and the current CEO of Automatic, predicted that the pandemic would make distributed work normal. Here's a link to that celebratory blogpost he made almost a year ago. As he makes clear in the blog, Mullenweg has been dreaming of a distributed world since he started his career in the 2000's and sees the movement away from offices as a silver lining to the tragedy of COVID-19. The CEO, who attributes his companies' massive successes in part to the distributed model they run on, has been doing media laps all year trying to help other companies go mobile. Here's a link to his appearance on Sam Harris' Making Sense Podcast where he goes through the advantages to distributed work and how to make it happen.
