It includes:  Home-based telework or "telecommuting", when an employee or contractor works at home instead of travelling to an employer's or a customer's premises. Terms definitions BIT&T, Riga, April 3–5, 2002

8  1877 The first telecommuter on record was a Boston bank president, who arranged to have a phone line strung from his office to his home in Somerville, Massachusetts. No one called it telecommuting back then. But it was smart business.  1963 A programmer working on the Arpanet project (the precursor of the Internet) in Santa Monica, California, reluctantly resigns from the project. His wife was experiencing a difficult pregnancy and was confined to bed; he needed to stay at home to care for her. A member of the project team suggested installing an extra phone line to the programmer's house, and letting him program from there using a teletype machine. The grateful father-to-be responded by putting in marathon 18-hour workdays from home. Both baby and project were delivered on time. What is the history of telecommuting?

Each year, more and more workers joined the ranks of telecommuters, often unofficially. Guerrilla telecommuting gained legitimacy as management saw that people working from home or from remote locations were among the most productive and loyal workers they had. early 80s Several telecommuting pilot projects were conducted, especially in California. Telecommuting consultants began to hang out their shingles, proof that telecommuting was here to stay. What is the history of telecommuting? (cnt’d) BIT&T, Riga, April 3–5, 2002
