Telework, Flickr Style

Posted By: Adeel Lari on 1/27/2010

As the old adage goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Apparently, and excuse me for not knowing this, you can create groups on the photo-posting website Flickr based on the topic. I found the pool for the topic “telework” today. There are over 500+ photos individuals have uploaded to showcase bits and pieces of their lives, as related to telework.

Some are funny, some are touching, but all remind me of why telework is important to all of us as people. Balancing different parts of our lives is easier, using the technology that we have is smarter and more efficient, working this way can make us more productive and happier. Why not tap into that potential? 

You can see the photos here. Here’s a taste of some of my favorites:

Soft purple couch, warm roaring fire, laptop, and pussycat. Does it get any better than this?"

Like my office view today? Photo taken by radven using the camera on my smartphone. Laptop being powered by radven’s solar power system on his tab rv. " Technomad heaven, I hear.
