“The mistake from here is assuming that offices are naturally better at building those kinds of social and supportive structures. In many a remote-critical piece I’ve read, there’s a kind of mythical office that remote culture is being compared to, a place where everyone is welcomed, where collaboration and support is easy-going and automatic, where everyone is always whiteboarding or talking in the hallways. It’s kind of astonishing to see how much this presumed office utopia has become implicit, given we have literal decades of satire about offices as locales of poorly lit, soul-sucking, isolated work, where you are more likely to be abused by your boss than sponsored by them. Dilbert did not become a cultural lodestone by avoiding the realities of offices but by highlighting them.” - Official myths | A Working Library
