In this agile and innovative age, working remotely is a luxury offered more and more to the average workers, and even some of the more popular columnists. We hear that columnist for The Australian Judith Sloan has a rarity in this age of open-plan offices and hot-desking: her very own office. But, according to a tipster, she has never really used it, and the boxes in her office remain packed up. Similarly, when we tried to get a hold of fellow News columnist Miranda Devine at The Daily Telegraph yesterday, we were told she only comes into the office about once a month. We assume that is to stay true to her roots and not be seen in the latte-sipping capital of Surry Hills.
