One thing that gets me when telecommuting is discussed in the media is
the almost total absence of interest in how telecommuting can lessen
environmental costs, such as pollution, high traffic density, and the
square footage necessary for parking lots and parking decks.
I have not yet had the option to telecommute, but I will be moving closer
to a better job market largely because telecommuting is almost unheard
of in my state (South Carolina).
