Location Matters Again

Bookmarklets | MOVABLE TYPE I read a paper "Home Is Where You Work, Work IS Where You Socialize : The Future of the Office" by David McIntosh. The author claims that the biggest paradox of the Internet revolution is that by enabling people to work anywhere, it has made location more important than ever.

Home is the place where you work (depending on how you define 'work', activities that require people no being interrupted : writing reports, reading, drawing stuff...) and work is the place where you reach your community, for meeting, exchanges, and so on. It seems that there is no substitute for face-to-face meetings, event with boring teleconferences.
