So a while back I caught wind of a contest Plantronics was having around coming up with a new term for telecommuters. That term was outdated. I submitted “remoter” and, crazy enough, it was a finalist out of over 500 entries.
This is cool. Personally, I like remoter because it’s simple, easy to communicate, and can be used for a long time (unlike the current leader, “cloudworker”), because remote is always a descriptive term of being away from your typical office.
Anyhow, if you like it, vote here and I can win some really cool stuff.
I’ll post back here on November 18th when the winner is announced!
