The idea that what you do is more important than where you do it is more widespread than you might think.I just read a report from IDC that by 2015 over 1 billion workers (over 1/3 of all workers) will be mobile, the fastest growing segment of the worker population.

No wonder. The average commute time in the U.S. is now over 25 minutes. Why waste time and fuel? With a booming technology of mobility-enabling devices, companies and workers are moving away from the traditional static workplace. Working anywhere is more sustainable and it can be more productive.

Worldwide organizations are realizing that time zone differences almost necessitate a mobile workforce. Since teleconferences are 24/7, that 2am global conference call is a lot easier to stomach in pj’s from your home.

There is an entire growing culture of mobile workers, sharing technologies and ideas to make mobility even more effective. Here are s few sites oriented to the growing mobile workforce:

Mobile Work Exchange

Global Workspace Association

CTIA-The Wireless Association

Think about what you are doing right now. Does it really matter where you are?
