In the Wake of Isabel - How Did We Fare?

By the time Hurricane Isabel hit the Outer Banks, its force had noticeably diminished, however it still packed quite a wallup. Given all the advance prep time, organizations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast were able to put their disaster planning protocols into high gear, and for the most part, the preparation paid off.

I had made a blog entry wirelessly during the blackout and was quite amazed by how far technology has taken us. I was reminded of this when I came across an article that reinforced the message that as we settle into an era where people can telecommute and use wireless technology to stay connected, even events such as hurricanes cannot prevent some from carrying on business as usual. To what extent will we adopt a decentralized workplace, and how prepared are we to embrace it? Time will only tell, but so far things seem to moving in the right direction.
