Remote from what

Remote work has a directionality to it that confuses me. Remote from what?

"Synchronous" and "asynchronous", I understand. They are dimensions of behaviours available to me.

The one I am now tracking is "connected" to "disconnected". Which leaves me with:

  • Synchronously connected: The sweet spot that is not always possible.
  • Synchronously disconnected: The worst spot. Experienced in many corporates.
  • Asynchronously disconnected: An active indication that something has to change.
  • Asynchronously connected: The one I have yet to figure out. In my experience, it is an unstable state that degenerates quickly to Asynchronously disconnected.
