That dream has sailed, says blogger Penelope Trunk.
"Thank goodness someone finally had the courage to stand up and say that telecommuting is officially banned," prolific blogger Trunk wrote. "Because telecommuting has been implicitly banned for a long time in Silicon Valley, but only Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has the courage to say it, point blank (and) without apology. And her honesty is going to help all of us."
Trunk said "telecommuting is for people who don’t want to give up everything for their company" and Mayer doesn’t want to work with people like that.
Trunk said the message Mayer is sending is that if you want to work for a company whose workers are "doing big and important things, you have to give up everything." And "it's OK to say that."
