Todd Underwood

Todd Underwood is a Site Reliability Manager at Google, working on the money side of the house (Ads Quality, Payments, Billing, Shopping). He can't help you with the reader shut down. Sorry. Prior to that, he was in charge of operations, security, and peering for Renesys, a provider of Internet Intelligence services. And before that he was CTO of Oso Grande, a small New Mexico ISP. He has a background in systems engineering and networking. Todd has presented work related to Internet routing dynamics and relationships at NANOG, RIPE and various peering forums (Global Peering Forum, LINX, and Switch and Data). Todd received a B.A. in Philosophy from Columbia College, Columbia University, and an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of New Mexico. This work is more or less completely unrelated to his formal training or expertise.

Dr Beth A. Prairie

Dr Beth A. Prairie completed her undergraduate degree in Anthropology at Columbia University, an MD at the University of New Mexico and a Master of Public Health (MPH) at Dartmouth. She trained in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Preventive Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon, NH, and is board certified in both Ob/Gyn and Preventive Medicine. Dr Prairie's research interests include non-hot flash symptoms of the menopausal transition and best-practice implementation of health care in clinical systems. Her research has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, presented at national and international meetings, and her work has been funded by the NIH. Dr Prairie recently accepted a position with Highmark/Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Western PA to develop their women's health program after five years as an Assistant Professor of Ob/Gyn at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In an unusually sane moment, Dr Prairie chose to take 4 months of leave between jobs, which is why she is in New Orleans. This work is almost completely unrelated to Dr. Prairie's expertise in either gynecology or health quality.
Abstract: The relative value of working from home has been discussed intensely in the media recently. We do a somewhat systematic review of the data, such as it is, to attempt to understand who is working from home, what is going well for them and what is not. Working from home ends up damaging or sidelining careers and salary and harming creativity while boosting productivity and certain kinds of satisfaction. It's a wash.
