    Pretty soon, everyone will be telecommuting!

    There are PLENTY of tools now to make remote collaboration a breeze, much more so than even five years ago. Dropbox, Google Docs, Google Hangouts, Skype, screen sharing like, productivity measurement tools like MySammy, remote time card iPhone apps, the good ol' fashioned Terminal Server or GotomyPC. Not to mention with smartphones and Blackberries, people are almost always at the employers' beck and call anyway. Considering studies show that most telecommuters put in more hours of work than office staff, maybe one day employees will all be longing for the days when they could actually leave work at work.
