What is making remote work popular today?
Communication and accountability tools have improved dramatically over the last few decades. 30 years ago physical messages had to be delivered to your desk. Now we have email, Slack, and an arsenal of other tools that enable seamless and instant communication with employees around the world.
Hiten says it was probably Blackberry that started this trend, enabling people to type emails on their phones. iPhone then came out with amazing hardware and made it 100x easier. Personally, Hiten Shah says he's typed up entire blog posts on his phone. It's so easy and fast, he feels no need to be tethered to a desk, or even to sit somewhere while working.
