Home...yet on the road...

When I'm not on the road teaching, I have the wonderful luxury of working from home. But, after you've worked from home for a while, sometimes you just need a change of pace. So, today I took my laptop and headed to a nearby Starbucks. It's very strange, but I actually am getting as much work done as I had been while at home. Not to mention that I'm happily sipping a Grande Decaf Non-fat No-whip Caffe Mocha as I work! (This coffee delight may make the more hardcore coffee drinkers grimace. A friend of mine calls it a "why bother"!) A light jazz CD is playing in the background and I'm settled into a quiet corner. Not a bad way to work!

Now...if the course I'm developing ends up having lots of coffee and jazz references in the notes, you'll know where they came from!

Back in my life at Oracle when I was and education manager I would stop in at the starbucks coffee shop at least one morning a week to catch up on stuff. This was pre Wi-Fi days. I would do off line email and expenses and like work. I still had a cell phone with me incase the feces hit the air circulating device. I called it my alternate command post. Today it would be even better with Wi-Fi.
