The Internet



An Electronic Digest

Telecommuters have their own online periodical, Telecommuter's Digest . Access to the employers' section is free and lets you post
job openings and review subscribers' resumes. The subscribers' section includes
articles on telecommuting and resume-posting privileges.

Studies on Telecommuting

The Telecommunications and Travel Research Program, supported by the University of California at Davis, posts research
and studies by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the California Energy Commission—among others—on the
impact of telecommuting on transportation services and communication methods.

Telecommunications and Travel

John S. Niles, president of Global Telematics—a policy research and consulting firm in Seattle—has posted
selected text from his book, Beyond Telecommuting: A New Paradigm for the Effect of Telecommunications
on Travel
, including a four-page executive summary.

Background on Telecommunications

The Minnesota Internet Center has posted a resource guide from the Planning Commissioners Journal , which provides
information on the history of telecommunications, its impact on urban and rural
communities and developments in information technology.

Another Telecommuting Resource

The Telecommuting Knowledge Center's sourcebook and information center includes telecommuting literature and contact
information for vendors and consultants, as well as product, service and event data. Registration is necessary, but free.
The Knowledge Center also maintains the following three Web sites.


  The Home Office Advantage

The Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) Knowledge Center has extensive literature on the home business, as well
as vendor and consultant contact information for employees and others working at home.

This site does for data warehousing technologies what the previous site does for small and home offices: It provides
literature and contact information for registered users. Registration is free.

With more than 300 e-commerce vendors listed and more than 400 pieces of literature on the topic of e-commerce,
the Knowledge Center lives up to its name for registered users.
