Coronavirus and garden offices

At the risk of jumping on the bandwagon, there's an interesting piece by Tim Bradshaw in the FT about the 'Coronavirus and the etiquette of working from home'. Here's a snippet:
For Chris Herd, founder of FirstbaseHQ, a start-up that supplies equipment for remote workers, this “asynchronous” working style is more relevant than questions of “office first” or “remote first”. Herd ardently believes asynchronous workplaces — where employees rarely get together but make decisions via centralised communications systems — are more productive, allowing for deep, uninterrupted focus: “Working in the office can mostly be about that instantaneous gratification of availability. It’s just disruption.”
Well worth a look (the article is quite short - here the FT tech team talks about their working from home experience). Also chipping in on this subject is 'Working from home could be the new normal as corona virus spreads' in the Telegraph. Even the Pope is working from home now.
