It's weird how, in the age of reasonably effective remote communication tools, software engineering jobs cluster extremely strongly geographically.
@pnathan i don't think i'd disagree too hugely or anything, but i also think there's just a lot of power in physical proximity that networked comms have a very hard time competing with.
in hybrid orgs, it still feels like you're going to have the onsite people who kinda know what is going on and the remote people who mostly don't.
i'm sure there are exceptions.
@pnathan don't get me wrong - i've spent half my life on the network and i've been full-time remote for several years, so i'm not over here arguing against the existence of remote work. but i think we're kidding ourselves if we assert that the network transcends any advantage to shared physical space.
