What’s most funny (in a depressing way) about this article is the commenters, as even though the article specifically mentions all the research that demonstrates that telecommuting increases productivity, the commenters ignore this and demonstrate exactly the cognitive flaws that the piece bemoans.

Humans are a flawed design. I will be glad when they are replaced.
