You had to write about how to properly site leaning
posts on runway aprons?
Sorry, couldn't resist. But I did have an idea on how
to promote the growth of remote work/telecommuting.
Lots of companies have to meet Federal requirements on
promoting carpooling, use of public transport, and
other ways of reducing worker commuting traffic, in
order to reduce pollution. It should be possible to
collect figures that show how companies could reduce
employee miles driven and reduce pollution even more
by telecommuting. Add in the savings to the companies
of no longer having to get posters printed and having
HR workers doing legwork to promote carpooling. . .
That idea's probably been around a while, but the more
the price of oil goes up, the bigger the savings
realized by telecommuting.
