In my work, I talk to a lot of management types for very
technologically-savvy companies. In the last year, I've noticed a
tendency for telecommuting to be reserved for people that the
company can't get any other way or for long-time employees who have
earned trust. Very few seem willing nowadays to let someone new
telecommute. Most employees can telecommute occasionally, but not on
a regular basis.

I don't know, but I suspect that, with the burst of the dotcom
bubble, many of the business practices associated with it, including
telecommuting, have been discredited.
