Mary's Little Kid

The first day of school and Open Work: "Today was the first day of school. And as you (regular) readers know, I am a happily married working mother of three school-age children. Today, I worked from home. Which meant when my kids walked in the door after their first day of school was done, I was here. I went into the living room to sit with them for a few mins and find out how their day went. My fourth grader had a really good day. She was so happy and excited and eager to tell me the story of how things went. She jumped from couch to couch to coffee table to couch and for 20 mins she talked non-stop, the whole time jumping from couch to couch and never touching the floor. These 20 minutes were the most precious part of my day today. The fear and anxiety my kid had in the morning melted into great joy, excitement and anticipation. I got to be part of that thanks to Open Work. What a gift. What an incredible and precious gift. I'm grateful for it." -- Mary Smaragdis

Wonderful.

Telework

The quiet revolution: telecommuting: "Telecommuting will become a mainstay in Corporate America but that doesn't mean everyone will be working at home all the time, a prediction made by many workforce observers just a decade ago. The U.S. worker will be a mélange of office inhabitant and work-anywhere warrior." -- MSNBC

It seems that the US is far ahead of the rest of the world in this issue. It's great to see. The article also talks about Sun's Open Work program.
