I have to agree with most of your comments about telecommuting, except this
one. I currently work as a contractor for a leader in microelectronic
manufacturing systems, writing User Guides, Service Manuals and just about
anything else they want. I also work out of my home office. However, I also
have an extensive background in hardware; I only live 30 miles from the
facility; and I have an excellent rapport with the engineering staff
(hardware and software). This is not the only contract where I worked out of
my home office and I doubt if it will be the last. I should add that I work
in Northern Vermont (closest bay is Mallots Bay area of Lake Champlain). I
haven't worked in the SF Bay Area since 1983 when I moved to Fairbanks, bay up there either (and not much technical writing), but a heck of
a lot of snow.
