Thanks to Larry Kunz for finding this appropriate follow-up to my last post about IBM discontinuing its practice of allowing remote work.  The author of this article sums it up much better than I could. Read this; all I have to respond to it is, “AMEN! EXACTLY!”

Yahoo and IBM have now set a bad precedence, and it has already started to affect Yahoo, as there is a current business rumor that both Yahoo and AOL are going to be acquired by Verizon.  Could it be that due to all the reasons listed in this article, Yahoo continued to decline? You be the judge.
