Distributed Living

The obvious has been work from home, and working remotely around the world.

The less obvious trend has been when families adopt this, as a distributed family unit. using the technologies to stay connected.ย 

For example a friend shifted countries for work, wife stayed behind and they alternated going back and forth. Not an ideal set up, but a way to maximize the opportunity and also alternate between two hemispheres. The tools make this more seamless.ย 

Or, kids out of school and to the other side of the world for a few months. Or sailing around the world on a boat. Using the tools to stay working, connecting and growing.ย 

Or another, the kids are now at university, around the world, and the family keeps in touch, near constantly.ย 

This in my mind is a logical step of remote work but maybe an under appreciated one. Beyond education, what new opportunities does the distributed family unit create?
