I just spent my entire day working remotely from the office and using Microsoft’s Office Communicator as my phone for important meetings. It was awesome! I put on a pair of headphones, hid away in a private room and did all of my office work from my laptop. I used Microsoft’s VPN to access corporate resources, including remoting into my HPC cluster. I could have participated in Live meetings or used a web came to do a video teleconference, but I didn’t. Still, this is what I imagine technology should do for me: enable me to be effective from anywhere to anywhere and all from one device. No one would have known the difference, except that I kept bragging about the part where I wasn’t in the office working…now, if only I could get internet up here…..:)
and, yes, this is me….
