Be there or be square, somehow.

When I first started working in my current position, there were no offices or even temporary space. We met at Starbucks for meetings and interviewed new recruits at various restaurants (free meals!). One early lesson was to stay as connected as possible
at all times, which meant company subsidized cell phones and Instant Messenger
accounts. Working at home all day on highly collaborative projects made these means of communication vital, but that didn't change when we moved into offices. Even though we all worked at the same place, the knowledge of presence
was just as valuable.
