The Modern Day Working Environment

With offices closed throughout Mecklenburg County for a second day due to weather, a Charlotte Observer article online prompted me to ask whether an office really ever closes anymore. Courthouses are forced to close, but with today's technology, do offices have boundaries anymore? Employees can easily work from home and many companies now offer the option to work from home. Many law firms have given up wood paneled offices and a marbled floor lobby to decrease overhead. As a criminal attorney in Mecklenburg County, I use my cell phone much more than my office line. Criminal attorneys are in court. That is their office. I would be cautious of a criminal attorney that is always at the office. I have organized my office so that I can communicate with clients  remotely in real time.  A text message is sent to my cell phone when a message is left at my office.  Faxes are sent to a computer. I can only wonder where we will be in 10 years?
