Working from anywhere

Yesterday Paul Haggis, writer-director of Crash, won Oscars for best original screenplay and best picture. His is another example to add to the long and growing list of things that can be done almost anywhere. Haggis suffered a heart attack while filming Crash. While he was getting well he decided against hiring a fill-in (after all this was his baby). He had monitors brought into his hospital room and finished directing his film from his bed. What was perhaps even more impressive is that he did it while whacked out on medication. Related: Telecollege (?) gets a boost And a milestone for a telecommuting-friendly company: Article here.
