Fair enough, homeworking isn't for everyone (at least fulltime homeworking). But the reasons why it simply doesn't suit some people are interesting. I particularly liked this from the Am I A Woman Scientist? blog who was forced to become a homeworker and was looking forward to it, but... "It turns out that I do need human interaction, no matter how brief. I also cannot brainstorm well over the computer because I am a doodler. I never noticed this trait until I was desperately trying to relate some concept or graph or whatnot by email or phone to someone who just "couldn't picture it". I do have Adobe Creative Suite and it did well in a pinch, but apparently for me there is nothing that can replace being in a room with a colleague and stack of scrap paper."
