Bend (Oregon), Dallas, San Diego, Santa Fe: In this episode of the show, we take a look at nine people who work and live within the same physical space. It has its own special challenges.

Most of us who have moved back home to work, believe "Homework is good!" If asked about being lonely, we answer, "There's no time!" With instant messaging, collaboration and webcasts, our offices have become nerve centers that can change the world. Plus we help save the environment, change the balance of trade, and preserve precious energy reserves.
In this episode of the show, we take a look at nine people who work and live within the same physical space. It has its own special challenges, and we can personally attest to some of them because this show is produced and mostly edited from home offices.
