Remote Workers Need Backups for their Backups
Thanks to Sophaya for quoting me in their article “Remote Workers Need Backups for their Backups.” Abstract below and full text is available here.
For an entire semester, students from Boston University’s Questrom School of Business worked on business plans for companies in China relying on Google to keep their shared notes and documents. It worked well until they landed in Beijing in January to find that the Google search engine and Google Docs were blocked.
There was momentary panic until their instructor, Greg Stoller, created a work around. He had them download everything to one computer that they then shared.
As a remote professional who works all over the world without a central office, Greg is used to improvising and thinking creatively.
