Too Long; Didn't Read
Computers and people both have a “state” in their minds. In computer systems, state is information that is remembered between interactions. We have to put what is in our minds into words or writing to share it with others. Distributed teams often struggle with sharing state. In-person teams share state more easily with each other, and it’s easier to build a shared understanding. Be explicit and build trust and trust with someone, the state is easier to share.
