Traveling Telecommuters

From CNN Money comes a report on Extreme Telecommuting. As they put it:
Telecommuting, of course, is hardly a new idea. Nearly everyone knows someone who works at home. But relatively few ask the next logical question: Why stay at home?

Anthony Page's WorkingNomad, has become a clearinghouse for those who aspire to being "white-collar nomads". Surprisingly, he notes that the downsides of this nomadic life include limited opportunities for socializing and no real vacations, not to mention the temptation to spend one's time sightseeing instead of tending to business.

Sean Aiken has a slightly different approach at OneWeekJob. He's traveling across Canada working a different job each week, and donating his wages to the Make Poverty History campaign.
