What is the tech industry if it cannot come up with tech solutions to enable people to connect remotely and innovate?

The Affinity metric may be highly correlated with the level of trust needed and the intended outcome of the relationship. Casual relationships or "associations" may not need high affinity where finding a business partners like a Co-Founding team need high affinity… so Zoom, Slack even VR may work for general engineering roles once a product has found Product Market Fit and is now optimizing and growing rather than innovating. But leadership roles most likely need a high affinity while they work together to innovate with new features, direction of the company, etc… so they may need to be in closer proximity and meet physically regularly.

These companies have seen innovation when working in office, now they need to give time for remote work. They cannot expect innovation to happen every 6 months.

Hard pass… I rather work from home. You don't allow me to work at home, I'm good.

Hippy, dippy BS. Creativity can and does occur everywhere, all the time, all throughout history. You don't need to live in an overpriced city and be in a sterile office together.

Advantages: hire innovators, regardless of geography or culture.
Disadvantages: limit innovation and your own company culture

This is all BS companies headquarters are so big there is never a good fruitful situation of creativity. For all the mentioned companies you go to work to show your face to your manager

maybe what we need is slower innovation and invention and a slower pace

Is Google News really "innovation"? Like he said it's "an aggregator of news" – I highly doubt that wasn't going to inevitably be created. I think that example is cherry-picked because there probably isn't really that many serendipitous water-cooler conversations. Let's be real for a moment: our days are hammered by more useless than productive meetings, wasted time commuting to and from an office in a city that's too expensive to live in, underpaid while mega-corps earn even higher than previous quarter's profits. Perhaps actually advocating for better work-life balance where folks can take the time to have a conversation without scarfing down their lunches just before they jump on the 5th Zoom call of the morning hours so that they can stay away for their afternoon conversations and early evening "work time".

Honestly I feel like the ones wanting workers to be in the office are the same folks that create toxic work environments. Either they’re a micromanager, work bully’s that have to feel sense of importance in the office or that employee who needs interaction that can only get it at work because they can’t anywhere else……..

All this talk about work from home becoming a permanent thing is absolute bs. If anything it makes more sense to have a hybrid model where employees work from home 2 or 3 days and the rest of the days they go to the office. It's impossible to build good relationships with people working remotely. Especially if you are new to the company. Its important to be interacting with people at work in person.

once you boss figures out you can work remotely, you will be replaced by an offshore worker working remotely. I know.

If work becomes entirely remote, why do we assume it’s going to stay in the U.S.? In the long run, whatever can be done remotely will be done where it’s cheapest. It’ll be a boon for India, but a lot of the Americans celebrating now will be out of luck.

Offices are for the ego’s of managers. Innovation will happen, anyways. We’ve already seen that over the past year.

The power is shifting towards the talent and away from the corporation and WOW they don’t like it. Talent wants to live in a more chill, cheap place to have a better quality of life and not be constantly stressed by traffic and bills. I’m far more productive without the distractions of people in my space constantly and the time lost to commuting. We have the tech to communicate with anyone we collaborate with in seconds, share information more widely rather than having to be in the room where a convo happened. If the tech industry can’t adapt, how innovation is it, really?

My first job out of college during this pandemic is a full-remote job and I guarantee that would not have been offered if this pandemic never happened

This elite think is BS. New tech nodes are popping up everywhere around the US as a result of the great Blue State evacuations. Nashville, Austin, Atlanta just to name a few. These companies with large centralized campuses are asking people to come back, at great burden to their workers, for one reason. Real Estate. They are all hemorrhaging money on massive HQ and land investments that are no longer found valuable to employees. Companies that can offer better benefits and compensation due to the lack of this burden will have the edge and Google, Amazon, Google all know it.

Remote working is good, especially for those who live in busy stressful cities with traffic, etc but same days of the week should definitely be assigned for physical so as not too loose the human touch.

Who are these "experts" kidding? Everyone know the greatest venue for skepticism . . . criticism . . . arguments . . . bouncing ideas . . . expressing opinions . . . and generating, new and creative ideas, innovation and solutions is . . . The YouTube comment sections!!! The real problem is that the powers-that-be never read or listen to them. Or if they do, they will claim that they had thought of it, and that it's "their" idea. Indeed the only real obstacle to innovation are these YouTube censors, blocks and demonetization.
