Today is my first day working from home. I'll be entirely remote starting the month of November while my team is all in Dallas but we're doing some trial days while I'm still in the Lone Star State. There will be obvious challenges (face to face communication, whiteboarding, team lunches, etc) and some great perks (no commute, a bit more flexibility, homemade breakfast from my sweet wife, etc). The American workforce is trying to solve these problems for the sake of the benefits and we're making progress thanks to technology. Webcams, virtual whiteboards, and high quality conference calls all make it possible. The last frontier of remote work is not technological; it is psychological. So many people have an immediate reaction to my working remotely of "Oh, I could never do that. I wouldn't get anything done." Today I begin my quest to marry the best personal habits with the best technological practices.
