Depends on the kind of work your doing. If you're delivering code, there is no problem with a long-term remote working situation.
Born and raised in the Northeast. Finished growing up in the Midwest. Settled into Midtown KC. Designer by trade, and cartooning all of the rest of the time. I work from home. I cook, clean, and kettlebell here as well.
Working from home is not for everyone, but if you can manage, it's the best. You have total control over your environment, and you can't ask for more than that.
"I am a games designer, illustrator, and engineer living and working in Bozeman, Montana. My company, RDI Studio, builds iOS mobile casino lottery games…Check it out. Enjoy!"
Absolutely. With communication and project management tools like Slack, Skype, GitHub, ZenHub, and Confluence, team members can be scattered across the globe. My last two freelance design and coding jobs were remote; and, I loved it!
Yes...Why do we have to be in the same Room, Office, Building, Town, City, Country to be brilliant?... marvellous things these modern day computers and telephones..great for talking and seeing people!!!!
Probably not for everyone, but definitely for me. I've been working remotely for the last 10 years (3 countries). The biggest problem for me was less productive meetings (skype), which I'm trying to solve with www.warbench.com

Remote working is not for everyone, neither it's applicable to any job. I think nothing replaces personal contact. I translate wishes into home decor. Getting the mood/feeling/lifestyle is essential and impossible through videoconference or email.
For a while. Remote working is going to adapt. As the technologies change, gas becomes more expensive and we as a culture begin to understand that families must be protected. let the morphing begin.
With advancement in collaboration tools and heightened awareness Remote Working will become a necessity.
I think just will formal dress code has changed over time, Working Remotely will also undergo a Transformational shift for longer term sustainablilty.
I believe that remote working will become a social desirement over time. Compelling drivers could include reduction in traffic congestion, reduction in gas prices, pollution control, cost efficiency and Overall improved GDP
Yes. Technology is advancing quickly and talent is no longer limited to ones region or country. The future of much work will be dominated by remote swarming teams, solving problems, completing projects then disbanding.
This is the view from the hill behind my home and office. Anytime I feel I'm losing focus on my work, I imagine this view is replaced by the dirty bleakness of a city. Sustaining long-term remote working is not a choice, it's a matter of survival.
I am an Electronic Resources Trainer for Mid-Continent Public Library. I enjoy learning about new technology and sharing that knowledge with our wonderful staff. In my free time I enjoy competing in agility dog shows with my cocker spaniel, Fletch.
I think remote working can be very rewarding and successful long-term and have friends who are enjoying that lifestyle. It takes the right kind of work matched with the right person. I might have problems ignoring the scenery outside my windows!
