What Is It Like to Work At Home?

I'm a technology person in a sea of people doing other kinds of work, and in general my colleagues have no idea what the heck I do all day. So I've blogged about that. This article is from another point of view: a human resources guy who works for a geeked out employer (HP, one of the great telecommuting-allowing employers out there). This article has a very accurate description of what it's like to work at home.

Especially true: the fabulous luxury of popping into the house to help with a five minute family thing (wrangling a small child into a sweater, moving laundry from place to place) and then being back at work in the blink of an eye. It takes about as much time as listening to that person who has to wander into your cube to regale you with details about their recent digestive disturbances, but it's much more pleasant.
