    Bazaarvoice isn't doing anything different that many companies do nowadays – job sharing, commuting from home, etc. I fail to see what's so interesting or compelling about their story. I'm sure Brett's wife "works" at home along with a nanny or two!

    I value this report but not once did I see a look at jobs that produce a commodity only services. Not once did I see a product being produced in this series. Nice to show the positive employment picture but without the discussion of producing something in this country that is tangible we are in serious trouble. I am furious that no one ever talks about the loss of not just manufacturing but of producing anything the world or we want.

    I have been a full time teleworker for 11 years of my 12 at a major tech company. It has been the best for my work life balance. I work a 9-6 day, with an hour for lunch; so not as flexible for going to daughter's sports functions, but this is another good story I like to hear and read about. For professional men and women, this really beats a cubicle. And we all work in a virtual world now, don't we?
