A well written commentary by Mike Dougherty, thanks.


Clearly there are big savings available to those companies which embrace remote work vs those which do not: you can save a ton of money on office space, office supplies, yakkity yak, the employees save time, wear on their cars if they drive, risk of death if they ride a subway, etc.


I could see a new order of things, where remote-work companies pressure the old rigid nine to fivers aside.  I can imagine a lotta societal benefits to the plan, with few drawbacks, but I will ask please the following question.  


The benefits to the expansion of remote working  are obvious, but what is the downside?
