Note that this has a good chance of being a remote-friendly job.
@mala speaking of, hows the EFF wrt that now-a-days? Are they going to open up more remote positions/allow some of those already hired to be remote? I could be wrong, but my memory was that ya'll are pretty much non-remote for the most part (see also: Internet Archive).
@Greg yeah, we've historically been non-remote, but of course we're *all* remote right now. that's been ok for some folks, better for others, and baaaaAAAad for yet more people, so we're trying to work out something that's sustainable. there's a committee!
@mala hahaha, perfect! :) Thanks!
- A serious work setup. Not your kitchen table, a real "desk" of some kind.
- Working from home can't mean new simultaneous caretaking (be that kids or a family member with full time age / disability needs)
- Develop routines, be serious about them. Respect from household members for them too.
- Serious but respectful accountability structure
@Greg @mala Yep... in that case I think it's basically my second bullet point coming into effect even though you were remote, because not only did you previously have a structure that your kids were at for 3/4 of the year's weekdays, now you are being thrown new schoolwork roles, and that's hard!
But yeah, on top of that, everything is harder and takes more thinking in pandemic times... every "trip to a store" is an exhausting new puzzle, recreation and restaurants aren't available as they were
@cwebber but hey! our playgrounds have opened up this week! So that's something! :)
Rough times. And that's just for relatively privileged knowledge workers too :\
@mlemweb and I are probably some of the least affected people categorically by the pandemic and it's been exhausting for us even... I know then that it's way harder for pretty much everyone else on earth...
