Chris Horn’s piece in the Irish Times entitled We need to adopt a no-commute culture is an excellent read and very timely.

This decade more and more companies will transition to work-from-anywhere no-commute workplaces. The reasons are of course compelling. Chris asks:

“Rather than the carbon emissions of literally hundreds of thousands of commuters; rather than the intense pressure on urban planning, housing and on personal lifestyle; and rather than investing heavily in yet further major infrastructure arteries, should we not now rapidly foster a national culture of no-commute whenever possible? The improvement in our national quality of life would be truly transformative, and benefit across all our society.”

We have the technology and know-how. Let’s use it!
