I don't think the security issue would be significantly worse than
it is now with people taking office laptops home with them at
night, and with appropriate lockdown and HD encryption could
be less of an issue than having a laptop full of company data on
the road twice every working day.

As for what the managers do, at this time I manage eight writers,
and they are all located remotely from my office. Whether they're
in our offices around the world or in their homes makes little
difference to me as their manager, so long as they are where they
need to be for various meetings, test sessions, etc., and their projects
advance according to schedule. However, I expect it would likely
be an issue for our corporate HR and Finance types.

How would you resolve these kinds of issues:,1895,2000268,00.asp?kc=EWGOVEMNL080906EOAD
(Another VA computer goes missing)

How would you address the need for managers to feel needed and other similar
corporate control issues?
