Just because she doesn't have the discipline to telecommute, doesn't mean others don't. If you measure productivity by accomplishment and value, then it really shouldn't matter where someone works. The company I work for would never have been able to hire me without the ability for me to telecommute. I suspect Yahoo will lose a few people who choose not to move to one of their locations. When I used to "attend" work regularly, I never came in on weekends, and I was out the door at 5:00 sharp. I had a 90 minute commute. Now? I work all day, I log in at night. I log in on weekends. I probably give them no less than a 60 hour work week. Do I mind? Not at all. I am happy to do so because I don't waste 3 hours in a daily commute. I also don't get interrupted by people seeing I am in and stopping by for a chat. I don't go out for lunch, not even to the cafeteria. My lunches are a sandwich at my desk. My work day is ever more productive than when I attend work. This doesn't mean there aren't times when I have to go in. I am happy to do so.
