Love this app. I now use my Android phone for all of my calls and take notes after each call. It's been a lifesaver when people have called me back and I've needed to remember something, now no searching - it just comes up when they call.

I know I am far less distracted in my home office than in any open plan space. Hence, I only work away from home a day or so a week.
Perceptions of at home workers are shifting as 52 percent of people believe that those working from home are just as productive or more productive than those in the office.

I agree with Avinash on this completely. I don't see how it's going to be sorted any time soon. Especially since so much of the "sharing economy" banks on it. 
Four Charts That Defined the World in 2014.

1. Far more people got online. 2. The price of oil plummeted.  3. China’s economy both surpassed, and didn’t surpass, the U.S. economy.  4. The rich keep getting richer; the poor, poorer.

Which one do you think has the biggest long term implications?  I think it is #4. I worry a lot about this fundamental shift in power. It is not just purchasing power, it that blue line carries with it political power, agenda setting power, and so much more. If we don't fix it, there can be major upheaval.
