Yes, Yahoo!'s argument that employees need to communicate and collaborate with each other is true. But the way to go about engineering this collaborative effort is not by abruptly banning your employees ability to work from home. This is just ludicrous.

Am I going to have to pretend I won't put my kids first if I want to climb to the top? And if I'm not willing to do that, is that the same as "opting out"? I'm in law school because I want to have a great career, but I refuse to accept that means I'll never have kids -- or, if I do, I'll never see them.
