I work in software development. I work from home in Washington state just outside of Portland. All my family is in Florida, but I melt at anything above 75 degrees.

So I'm actually in Florida right now. Imagine my surprise going from 30's in NYC to high 70's here.

Well, we can't all live in one state right? LOL

Funnily enough at times in the winter it's actually warmer here than my parents place outside Tampa.

We communicate with each other all via text, skype, webinars, email and phone. We do most of our business face to face with our customers. We drive to their home for their convenience or occasionly do apps via email.
In my opinion, with the exception of a hand ful of industries and businesses, if you have a brick and mortar business you are behind the curve. Brick and mortar is becoming obsolete and will be in most industries within 10 years (maybe less).
Not in my business. Gotta have a place to MFG, and very specialty items (Trade Secrets/Patents), so no overseas company will be doing it. I doubt that the car MFG's will have people go work from home either.

I'm in CA and work from home. One thing I haven't seen mentioned is the reduction in cost to employers. Many employers will reimburse for phone, supplies cost, equipment, etc. Even after those reimbursements, a home office employee is still substantially cheaper to an employer than space and overhead maintenance costs.

Where this is possible it is absolutely true.

Software development. I worked from home for 9 years before moving to Florida.

Often teams are distributed across several geographies and if you work with multiple teams, they will rarely be in one place. Time zones are about the only issue you run into. For instance W3C working groups will usually meet on East Coast time and folks in Europe and on the west coast have an late or early meeting. Folks in Asia that participate end up with a late night meeting. If you work with a team where the design, UX and content are done on the East coast and development is done in India, most joint meetings will be on East coast time.
