The new heads of AT&T are continuing their streak of brilliant decisions; this time they are calling back all the teleworkers to cubicles.  The huge telecommunications companies execs apparently has difficulty grasping the concept of workers who use the internet and telephones to communicate with home office.  Slashdot has more on this move which should qualify AT&T's HR department for a stupidest decision of the year award.

You can also catch the 16th PC Perspective Podcast on iTunes, through the RSS feed or keep it simple with the MP3 version.

"AT&T is requiring thousands of employees who work from their homes to return to traditional office environments, sources

say. 'It is a serious effort to reel in the telework people,' says the Telework Coalition's Chuck Wilsker, who has heard

that as many as 10,000 or 12,000 full-time teleworkers may be affected. One AT&T employee says rumors have been circulating

since AT&T's merger with SBC that the new upper management is not supportive of teleworking: 'We'd heard rumors to that

effect, and all of a sudden we got marching orders to go back to an office.'"
