When everybody’s mobile, we need to start thinking
about how people carry things, how they get
reconnected when they land, how they get up and
transition to the next space, and how they then make
similar transitions from point to point during the day.

As a remote worker and frequent traveler, my work area is basically
a desk adjacent to my living room, with a beautiful view of the mountains.
Telepresence is the most important feature of my office: I’m “on”
for much of my day. At times, I work from a coffee shop, the library,
or places that have wireless access and some social interaction.

I live alone and find that any part of my entire 800-square-foot apartment can morph into
my work area, depending on my task. I’m set up with a speakerphone, printer, and webcam at
my desk, so I can communicate effectively with my team. I find myself relocating to my dining
room or kitchen counter when I’m checking email or working on a presentation. The courtyard
of my building is wireless, so I often take my laptop and sit outside or read by the pool.
