This Year, Spam Followers, & Future Posts

Yes, I’m still here and I plan to do something different on this blog this year. I began this blog focusing on the matter of telework (otherwise referred to as “remote work” or “virtual work”) as it was an exciting concept I wanted to promote. Since then, I’ve learned about obstacles to adoption and the fact that some large organizations that initially embraced it decided to call their remote workers back onsite.

So what do I think telework’s prospects are now? Well, I don’t think society will see more experimentation and, possibly, more widespread adoption until telepresence technology (enabling a more realistic simulation of face-to-face interactions) becomes more available at a lower cost. This type of technology includes holographic video conferencing as demonstrated by Cisco:

Social Media Burnout and the Value of Time Spent Unplugged

Looking back on over a year’s worth of blogging and social media networking, I’m grateful for all the opportunities that have opened up to me through actively engaging in these activities.

Tonight I’d like to take the time to express my appreciation to Christian at http://fivequickminutes.wordpress.com for recently naming me as a recipient of the Versatile Blogger Award. As a relatively new blogger, it’s a real honor to be recognized by others in the blogging community. My thanks to Christian and others who’ve encouraged me along the way! Futhermore, I just want to mention that Christian’s blog, Five Quick Minutes: Just Five Minutes On the Path for Learning, contains helpful and thought-provoking information covering various aspects of life. So, head on over and take a look soon!

According to the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award, recipients have the privilege of choosing 15 other bloggers with whom we can share this award. (As a new blogger, this will be a tough one for me but I’ll list blogs pertinent to work-life issues – in a big picture and little picture sense – that I follow with regularity). They are then to display the award on their site, name the website which awarded them with a link back to that blog (however, as I know many of these bloggers are busy professionals, I’m bending the rules here), and provide us all with 7 things about the owner/writer of the website (this latter part I’ll happily oblige).
