From the satellite dish to your joy stick

Great article on remote collaboration. During the boom, I worked for a company in Boston while I lived in Denver. There were five of us, hired as a group to do research and development, and we had a small office in the hip lodo part of downtown. We also worked from home a lot, which I find is the best way to be really productive. In order to keep in synch with the Boston office, and with each other when we were at home, we used an intranet site, VPN (for access to our systems in the office), and HotLine and it worked amazingly well. Successful remote collaboration requires people who are organized, reliable, and committed. I've done remote collab on a much smaller scale for one-off projects and the ease with which it happened varied wildly depending on the people.

You can negotiate with somebody who has different preferences than you do. But negotiating with somebody who inhabits a different reality is very difficult.
