Going Unplugged

Imagine sitting under a tree in the park, sipping an iced tea, reading Web pages, and editing a document from a computer at your office server. You can do this because you've gone "unplugged." You're working with network resources on your own terms, as neatly as if you were at your office, chained to your desk. Working this way is not a farfetched idea anymore!

Local area networks (LANs) were once considered esoteric and difficult to use, but now I hardly stop to think where my files and applications are stored. Who cares whether the file is really in my computer or if it's in another building? To me as a user, they're just in a folder on the desktop. The distinction between my computer and others on the LAN is almost gone.
