For those of you here in the D.C. area, I will be on News Channel 8 Wednesday night. They have a program at 7:30p each night that focuses on federal news and they are doing a segment on telework. So... I'll be talking telework with News Channel 8's Beverly Kirk during the second segment. I have no idea when that will be, but...

Of course, our most recent telework story was part of our CXO Lessons Learned series:

Wired for telework [Federal Computer Week, July 10, 2006]
Federal agencies struggle to overcome reservations about a flexible work option they must offer eligible employees.

For those outside Washington, D.C., News Channel 8 is a local cable station that focuses on Washington area news. The channel is owned by the same people who own WJLA Channel 7, the local ABC network station here in D.C., so they use a lot of the same "talent." And, to be honest, I don't watch a ton o' TV -- especially local news... I'm more of a newspaper and radio guy. So I have never seen this particular program. But I'll report back on the experience.
