Working from home in Tokyo

Interesting piece in the Financial Times (2 April) about how the terrible earthquake has forced a change in culture at some Japanese companies, which are now giving employees remote access to computer systems or letting them work from home via personal emails and mobile phones. A big change from traditionally rigid office hours, and just what we're arguing in the book needs to happen worldwide to benefit businesses and individuals, as well as the environment. So sad, though, that it takes a disaster of this magnitude to make change happen.

Book Written!

I'm pleased to announce that Alison and I met our deadline of the end of March and have submitted everything to Palgrave Macmillan. No doubt there will be some editing going on over the next few months but we are confident that what we have written is going to make very interesting reading.
