Why Agencies Can't Work From Home has an interesting article about how agency workers can't work from home (h/t to +Ric Dragon for sharing this with me).

The article makes some great points about the benefits of collaboration and the general atmosphere in a work place where everyone is under the same roof.  I agree with most of the points, but I don't think it's as cut and dry as creatives CAN'T work from home.

Maybe for some it might be more beneficial to work in an office, but I've been running a small agency for 5 years now, everyone one that works with me is remote. We still get great results on our projects.

With mobile telephony programs like Go To Meeting, Skype and Google+ Hangouts, collaborating remotely has never been so easy as it is today.

What do you think? Is being a creative in an agency and working from home doomed? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
