Directors like homeworking

According to Richard Gray, science correspondent in the Daily Telegraph, The Institute of Directors is keen on flexible working and especially more homeworking (and by implication, shedworking) to help tackle global warming. According to Gray: "Miles Templeman, the institute's director-general, said offering employees greater flexibility would ease pressure on transport networks and cut rush-hour power demand - thereby reducing emissions. Mr Templeman urged ministers not to rush into policies that risked harming the economy, such as caps on emissions and carbon taxes." An interesting corrective to the survey results I posted earlier today from Mitel.

    you sent me a couple of issues of the shed magazine through the ppb forum which were fun, thanks.

    I saw an architectural competition that you might be interested in: to design a garden shed. The link is

    "to help tackle global warming" my arse ... they want to relax at home like the rest of us. The difference being, they'll actually get to do it ... maybe in 20 years time the trend will extend to the rest of us when they figure out the cost savings involved (and when they developed sufficiently good monitoring software).

    /rant over.
