The thing is, there's no sense denying that there's a synergy when
employees are together in one room that isn't present when they're dialed
in - unless everyone is dialed in. But in every company I've been at, if
there's a meeting where there's a group in the room and individuals dialed
in from remote locations, the only people you really hear from are those in
the room.

Unless one of the individuals is very senior to those in the room, in which
case the room is a morgue.

I think what people on the thread are talking about is the fact that
synergy and innovation are probably not the reasons for the sweeping
changes at Yahoo, and it's disingenuous to pretend to believe their HR
press release. But HR can't really put out a press release that says, "Hey,
we're trying to get people to leave in droves - could those of you who we
don't pry out of your seats with this move please send a list of other
perks that we can start cutting? That would make this so much easier."
