If the Internet works, we work.
While we may be more productive at home, it doesn’t make up for being
at the office. Face to face meetings help eliminate spin and keep projects on track. Our presence also increases the likeliness of running into coworkers, with whom we exchange ideas or to dos.
But when the Internet goes down for the day, a rarity, we stop everything and take an early dismissal.
The Internet is always on somewhere: at home, on mobile, at work. If it goes down in one place, we’ll quickly shift to the other, particularly if it means we get to escape work.
Typing from the couch is a welcome relief from the cubicle.
