When you start your computer you press a power button to get electricity to flow through its internal circuits. The power button of the world computer is an interface, that will help you become part of the circuitry. Here is how it will look and generate money for you in the future.
The current climate has shown the businesses around the world the unthinkable was possible — employees can work from home or away from a central office. It’s got the potential to ruin productivity, creativity and employee health and wellbeing. A recent opinion piece in the Guardian was titled — “Coronavirus is giving us a glimpse of the future of work — and it’s a nightmare”.
Design Sprints optimised for remote work. Cal Newport’s book focuses on how to do work as an individual, our process gets up to ten individuals all doing Deep Work, at the same time to solve the same problem. Before remote work was the thing/norm.
On February 19th we ran an experiment — what if we guide several teams at the same time through Deep Work Sprints, with each time working on a similar problem? In the following I will describe how we did it, what the results look like and how we can scale Deep Work Sprints into infinity, thus creating a structure for solving very high-stake problems in a short amount of time with very little resources.

After comparing my remote work with other remote companies I came across few principles, or challenges, we all had in common.
Working in product design and need to test your digital products? Also want to give your clients the option to tune in without disturbing? Here’s the software, hardware and brainpower we use to run these bad boys every week.
If you think that building a prototype to test your idea is difficult, requires a lot of resources or a skilled team, you might be right. But building prototypes for nearly anything for the last two years I found a few ways to make the right compromises, even if you don’t have a high end production studio.
It’s not all about the content or the people, it’s mostly about you, your performance and your ability to keep everyone entertained.
For blockchain teams knowing if you’re building the right thing is hard
