Organizations are getting better at workforce planning with their eyes on decentralized, remote workers…but maybe not as fast as potential talent is!  A great post on Smart Planet “Internet spurs new migration wave: professionals seek their own private Idahos” talks about the surge in innovation in cities like Boise, which offer better quality of life and a more affordable lifestyle than some of the more traditional sources of innovative talent (I type, sitting in San Francisco). 

Including links to the Economist and references to Richard Florida’s Rise of the Creative Class, it’s a good read for people who are starting to think differently about where and how the workforce can be engaged.

In the meantime, I’m checking house prices in Boise.
