The Remote Weekly goes out every Wednesday and brings to you original content, product tips and latest stories around remote working.
Let Al's story be the antidote for CTRL Labs' acquisition 😀
Are you a believer in the future of remote working involving distributed teams interacting in a VR world? Facebook's recent ~$1 billion acquisition of CTRL Labs will surely be of interest to you.

Ahh, Facebook, not again!

Finally, we had a blast talking to Darren Murph from Gitlab.

Do you want to know more? Watch out for this space next week!
