Why on earth would anyone chose to commute?
Our office recently considered how essential was our physical building? If our success somehow depended on it, would we be able to achieve the outcome without holding a permanent residence?
Ultimately (for the time) we’ve elected to remain in our space. Downtown in our city isn’t a bad place to be. (especially in the summer)
There are indeed physical jobs that require your presence to accomplish the duties. Assembling factory products, flying a plane (sort of), digging ditches etc…
If you’re a knowledge working chances are you live inside technological tools enabled for sharing and collaboration with distributed teams.
If you need to be in the same room with someone chances are it’s because you aren’t embracing the full functionality of tools and/or ground rules for team hygiene aren’t in place for the team to be successful.
With all the co-working solutions available it really doesn’t make sense to keep office space anymore. If you REALLY feel the need to jam in the flesh then there’s plenty of ways to accomplish that when needed. (chances are for a fraction of the cost and with a much lower carbon footprint)
I know this isn’t always a popular opinion viewpoint so it would be great to hear in the comments about your experience.
How many miles would be saving if you didn’t have to leave your house to go to an office everyday?

Remember as kids when we used to dream of cars that drove themselves? Well, we all know it’s already happening with Google’s self driving car. But Tesla is going to blow your mind because they recently

This is very exciting to me. I’ve been paying attention to Elon Musk for many years as someone who personifies the exponential thinking manifesto. The Tesla is a beautifully designed piece of engineering and I want, I want.
After seeing this video I now want a Tesla even more.
The most recent over-the-air update has added driver-less capabilities to the already extremely cutting edge vehicle. This puts the Tesla years ahead of any of the other makers in terms of innovation.
I think I may be waiting a while for the over-the-air driver-less update for my truck.
Solving the world’s transportation and supply chain challenges with alternative energy solutions may sound like geek talk. The sheer delight in this driver’s expression demonstrates you don’t have to be a scientist or engineer to understand the future is going to be a fun place.
The future is happening right… …now!
