Most of us are web workers because we enjoy it. Whether it’s the feel of being on the cutting edge of technology, the joy of working anywhere, or the contribution to saving the planet by not commuting physically, there are a lot of good things to be said for our chosen way of working.
But we all know it’s not all strawberries and cream. There are days that staying home instead of mixing with peers in the workplace is the most boring thing in the world. There are hotspots that won’t connect, computers that break down, privacy and security worries. And of course there are all the joys that come of dealing with computers, the machines we love to hate.Presumably, the good outweighs the bad for most of us. But it’s OK to grouse to your peers once in a while. So, today’s question: where are your worst pain points in web working? What areas would you desperately like to find help with? What parts of your life make you long for a “regular” job?
