In the week between the Spirit of the New Workplace teaching weekends I am staying in my sister's house in the Santa Cruz mountains. My oldest niece, who works for a bank in Silicon Valley but lives with her school teacher husband in Orlando, called this morning and I answered the phone.
"Joe, it's Sara."
"Sara! How are you?"
"I'm sick as a dog...and I have a question -- can you call in sick when you telecommute?"
Seems like a good SNW question to me...
