Although their history occurred a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, much of what was portrayed even in 1977 has yet to become readily available for us humans.

In honor of Star Wars day we at TechCo did some digging through the Star Wars universe to come up with some of their most innovative technology that we wish were reality.

With a rise in remote working comes a shift in culture. Connection and structure are still essential – even if all-hands meetings happen over Google Hangouts, rather than in an overly-warm conference room.

Here’s a look at the challenges, counterintuitive benefits and best practices that an all-remote workforce faces today.

In 2015, a worker in the San Francisco Bay Area earning $100,000 a year would need to put their entire post-tax salary into renting a three-bedroom apartment. Plenty of workers have had enough: In the final quarter of 2017, according to real estate company Redfin, more residents left San Francisco than any other major U.S. city. You’d be forgiven, then, for assuming the city is seeing a net loss of tech workers. But, you’d be wrong, according to a new report out from LinkedIn. On TechCo, @AdamRRowe takes a look at why the Bay Area isn't bleeding tech workers after all.

For years, the primary way to monetize your creative hobby online was through advertisements. Yet the biggest ad-supported platforms only pay creators between $.10 to as little as $.0005 for each fan that enjoys their content. Enter @patreon — the service that claims it can multiply those numbers by anywhere from 50 to 10,000 times. It even cuts out the advertising middle-man, to boot.
