Home is where the office should be

A great piece in the First Post by Robert Matthews extolling the virtues of homeworking and blaming middle managers for not thinking outside the shedbox in terms of working styles. He concludes:
"There's a rich historical irony in all this. Two hundred years ago, the technology of the Industrial Revolution led to the rise of centralised "manufactories", and bitter resentment among those forced by bosses to leave their homes to work in them. Now technology has made such centralisation redundant ­ and it's the bosses of the 21st century manufactories who are acting like Luddites."
Well worth a browse.
