Issue #61  (Tools & Articles on Remote Work) 04/13/20

For this week's issue, I've specifically chosen tools, apps, and articles that will be useful for anyone working remotely due to the current world situation. There seems to be no clear end to this, and many online have been sharing articles and apps related to remote work and working from home. So were lots to choose from.

Remote work
Remote work and isolation are the current norm.
Overall, I hope you're all doing well and are following your government's, province's, or state's recommendations when it comes to social distancing, mandatory isolation due to travel, and so forth. The more effectively we obey these suggestions now, the quicker this will all be over and – more importantly – the more lives we will save.

That's all for this week's intro. There's plenty of content to keep you busy in the curated links below.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
