10% of teleworkers work nude!

Love this Wikinews story. A survey by SonicWALL, a Sunnyvale, CA, based company, reports that 10% of worldwide telecommuters are nude while working, finding 12% for men and 7% for women, respectively. A gender gap also exists for showering on work-at-home days, with 44% of women showering, while only 30% of men did. The survey also found that 39% of both sexes wear sweats while working from home. The survey also covered less racy topics, including opinions on productivity. 76% felt that working at home increased productivity. The number of telecommuters has increased sharply in recent years. For example, 43% of U.S. government employees telecommute, at least part of the time; up from only 19% one year ago. Posted while naked!

Way too much detail at the end there, Donald.

Thank God I don't have a visual learning style.

Now this really interests me. And comforts me. I've always found it's great to get up in the morning and get straight to work on something that has clearly been cooking while I've slept. The creative energies are all lined up and I'm raring to get stuck in. At 6.48 a.m. who gives a damn what I look like? Now I realise I'm not alone. Thanks, Donald.

I used to telework in Australia when all my co-workers were 12,000 miles away in London. Yes, I think I was more productive. Something not covered in the survey was "more effective housework" - Yes, that too. For a break, I'd put the washing on. And .... well it was really hot up there in the tropics.

We'll soon have enough for a club.

How about STRIP - Starkers and Ready Internet Posters. Other suggestions for names welcome - careful!
