In New York City, it's one of those days that never actually began—we kind of just slipped right into that dirty gray 4 p.m. light from minute one. It’s raining in every single direction. It is the kind of day when you are both freezing and sweating when you get to work, if you can even burrow your way out of the human cuddle puddle that is the subway today.
We should not be at work today, unless we are firefighters or doctors, or maybe baristas. Lawyers, consultants, any kind of entrepreneur, and definitely the NYPD: work from home. Do you work on the Internet? If not, stop reading this, you're not doing work. Go home. If you are, say, a software developer, or computer programmer, or blogger: Go home now. Here’s what you do when you get there: Connect to your incisively named wireless network and start doing the job you do normally when you are at your job. You can write e-mails, read articles, produce content. It can all happen, right there, on your laptop.
