A web resource by the Federal government to educate managers and employees about effective telecommuting
In light of all the recent controversy Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has stirred up over telecommuting, you may be interested in checking out this online resource by the U.S. Government.

One trend I have noticed in the computer industry is that, when it comes to working remotely, companies tend to be much more tolerant of it for software developers than system administrators, even though both are equally possible remotely. In fact, it is becoming rare that the data centers housing the servers that administrators manage are even located in the same location or region. This is especially true with the rise in cloud computing and server virtualization.
