I guess I don't see this as such a bad thing. I don't have anything against my
co-workers, but they're not necessarily the people I want to have meaningful
contact with. I always think of telecommuting of giving me the advantage of
more time for communication around home--with children, spouse, or neighbors.
This is where I really want community--not at work.
