Was this article written in 2008 and belatedly published? I don't know a single developer who hasn't been working 100% remote since the beginning of the pandemic, if they weren't before. (BTW, having "monthly in office meetings" means you're not actually "fully remote".)

And for anyone in doubt, "grabbing coffee, checking email, conversing with colleagues, meetings, " -- those things don't somehow magically go away. I still make myself coffee in the morning, I check email, maybe chat with fellow devs via Slack/Teams/whatever, and I look at my calendar to see what meetings I have in addition to standup.

Only the place I sit or stand to do the job changes, not the job itself.
