Thanks for those insightful comments, Dave.
However, even if your supposition is correct that some work “can’t be done as well with the telecom tech” at this time, that is bound to change in the near future as further high-tech advancements and innovations become embedded in society and more commonplace in the virtual workplace.
As I’ve noted, while some jobs like manual labor, for example, may never be conducive for telework, it’s possible that robotics or other advanced tech will take its place. We can try to ignore or run from the High-Tech Information Revolution, but we can’t hide. Eventually it will engulf us all like a tsunami.
In 50 years from now, or less, physically commuting to a brick-and-mortar shared workplace may be the exception to the rule. Tech is taking over whether we like it or not. It’s just a matter of time until a total IT work transformation takes hold of the workforce, which will eventually be virtual as the norm.
Just as the Industrial Revolution did not occur over night, neither will the High-Tech Information Revolution. Nevertheless, the transition has begun and will only pick up steam going forward. Love it or loathe it, there’s no turning back now.
