You can't say he isn't going 100% on this Republican heel turn

You can't really put a price tag on that kind of cutting age, innovative thinking.

For generic white-collar work, I've yet to hear any sort of cogent argument for more than two days a week in the office. It's been very funny to me seeing all these bros from finance and tech who espouse data-driven decision making just make vague appeals to "the culture" when asking for more. So I guess in that sense I at least appreciate that Elon made it clear that it's because he said so rather than pretend he has an actual reason?

I've been in a 100% remote org for a decade and it cracks me up when companies doing similar work say stuff that implies it's impossible or can't be done. Just a complete lack of imagination. I do appreciate that it's not a zero cost transition, IMO you need everyone doing the same thing(it can't be some 100% colocated and some 100% remote) or you'll disenfranchise one group because you can't orient your company's operating processes around both. And if you go from colocated to remote you do need to reimagine a lot of how the company works and that is a tough and potentially expensive thing to do. Also stuff like legal and HR gets exponentially more complicated because different states and countries have not built their laws and regulations for a 100% remote world. But these are well worth the benefits that workers get(and pay back through lower attrition), the savings on physical office space, and frankly the productivity from remote work incentivizing output over presence.

“Because Elon said so and no actual reason” is basically how that company runs and has its insane valuation. So it makes total sense, lol.

This is straight up just because he can't terrorize and berate and pressure people into doing what he wants as "effectively" as when he could throw a tantrum at them in person. He's horsefeathering notorious for that horsefeathers, and he couldn't even help himself with the little shot about how people working from home are "pretending to work."

She'll be on with Kellyanne Conway on a segment called "women in corporate America" to talk about how difficult it is for a woman to speak truth to power.

LOL she's supposed to have democratic party affiliation

The car is acting like someone is in the car without the fob, even though he's got it right there.
