With a 25 to 50% increase in gasoline prices in recent memory, it is now becoming more and more apparent that a significant way to save on travel costs for individuals, companies and government agencies is to limit driving to work, customer sites, conferences (well maybe not conferences), and meetings. Telecommuting has been around since the 1970’s (Telecommuting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecommuting). I’m not talking about satellite offices though, although that and anything else you can think of to save travel costs would be great. I’m speaking to the ability to work from anywhere, especially one’s own home.
