Andy Abramson on Working Anywhere

Summary: Andy Abramson has just announced a new project called Working Anywhere that is completely in sync with my interest in how increasingly ubiquitous broadband connectivity, mobile technology tools, and virtual or distributed teams are changing our notions about work. As most of the work Andy and I do together is accomplished virtually using these tools. I can attest to his mastery of a Work Anywhere methodology.

In my work at Foldera, I've had the great fortune to get to know and work with Andy Abramson. If you have any serious interest in VoIP and mobile technologies, you probably have his VoIP Watch blog in your aggregator. Andy has just announced a new project called Working Anywhere that is completely in sync with my interest in how increasingly ubiquitous broadband connectivity, mobile technology tools, and virtual or distributed teams are changing our notions about work.

As most of the work Andy and I do together is accomplished virtually using these tools. I can attest to his mastery of a Working Anywhere methodology. Using technologies like SightSpeed, he's pulled real-time meetings together with teams of professionals around the country (or the world) as needed to address the specific requirements of the project we're collaborating on – getting Foldera ready for launch. He, Oliver Starr, and I have been criss-crossing the Atlantice for the past month but have managed to leverage a readily accessible and very affordable set of tools and broadband connections to maintain progress.

It will be very interesting and, I'm sure, enlightening to read his thoughts on how succeed in the new world of work.

  • Wooo buzzword!

    Do these guys actually do any work or are they reading blogs and writing their own all day? (No, I don't consider that work) I really don't see how one could have another job after doing all of that. Kudos to them if they make a living that way. Maybe I should try.

    "If you have any serious interest in VoIP and mobile technologies, you probably have his VoIP Watch blog in your aggregator."

    Hahahahahahaaaaa.... my blog aggregator... thanks for that. I'm not that bored. Speaking of Foldera, do you and Oliver Starr work on that? Or are you just figureheads? I hear a lot of talk and it seems Foldera has hired a bunch of people to do talking. So are you being paid by ZDNet and Foldera at the same time for this little blurb you wrote? What about Oliver and Mobile Crunch? Does it seem like a conflict of interest to anyone?

    "As most of the work Andy and I do together is accomplished virtually using these tools"

    What is that work exactly?

    What is the "Working Anywhere" project anyway? It seems like it's just a blog post and possibly a new blog. How does this help me? It's more talk I guess. Drum up some more hype, preach on the future of who knows what, and get more people to view your site for more ad revenue.

    I've been watching for Foldera to come out and all I get is this stuff over and over. I don't have a problem waiting, but hearing this all the time is getting annoying. I wish the Foldera project the best.
