Submission + - Yahoo's VPN logs showed telecommuters were slacking off (

Stiletto writes: Business Insider and All Things D are reporting that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's decision to ban telecommuting was as data-driven as you'd expect out of the former Google exec. After spending months frustrated at how empty Yahoo parking lots were, Mayer consulted Yahoo's VPN logs to see if remote employees were checking in enough. Despite all the outrage and flak she's getting from those outside the company for the move, some ex-employees are praising the decision, citing abuse, slacking off, and general "unavailability" of folks working from home.
