How are the different time zones of remote team members at Stack Overflow accounted for?
In a recent interview Joel Spolsky mentions that remote work is best done within similar time zones to allow high bandwidth communication through Google hangouts, slack etc.
In the interview Joel says "We pretty much hire people in Western Europe and North America" & "We overlap 4 or 5 hours a day"
Does this mean that Stack Overflow only hires on the East Coast of the USA?
If Stack Overflow does hire on the West Coast, how is the time zone difference of 10 hours accounted for between the West Coast and Western Europe?
