Trying Telecommuting on for Size

As part of a series in the Albuquerque Trib on reducing the need to drive cars around, J.A. Montalbano spent a day telecommuting, and wrote about it. It's a reasonably good snapshot of a typical telecommuter's day, except I wish there was a bit less getting a haircut and shopping for groceries and a bit more working and doing things that can be difficult to get accomplished in the office.

The piece also notes that some things were hard to do, like collaborate with the layout artist. This is a problem easily solved by the right tools -- a small investment in some online workspaces and they'd be in business.

But all in all, the article illustrates what I know about telecommuting from Albuquerque: it's pretty darn nice. Now if I could just get out of the house more.
