Having managed a (partially) telecommuting workforce before, nothing is more frustrating than not being able to reach people or get answers in a timely manner.
It really depends on the combination of management, tasks, and individuals to make telecommuting work.
In my personal case, admittedly, we had insufficient procedure for measuring progress to ensure equal productivity through telecommuting, and people were quick to take advantage of that (yes, I am admitting management failure here) This was not in an IT-related field but a more traditional business field.
Since there is gravity on the Moon, wouldn't the fabric have come down to hang close to the pole, i.e. just like it would on a calm day on Earth?
But it's obviously difficult to tell what one is looking at exactly.

It's a welfare system, and they win.
Personally, I don't see how switching my (income-earning, tax-paying) lifestyle to a welfare one would be a win, but I am sure you must be right. After all, people everywhere in the US are just lining up and asking for wage decreases in order to earn as little as possible so they can apply for federal programs... Wealth is different from income and is taxed differently, usually much to the advantage of those with wealth. The great myth is that wealth is always earned (through income and wise choices) by the person benefitting from it. In the real world, wealth is passed on.
Futhermore, compare this to the Motofone (admittedly also awful to use) which sold for about half 3 years ago.
I agree with the concept of doing away with touchscreens and apps and so forth as not everyone likes/uses them (my favorite phone ever was the Nokia 6210), but why make it look and be useable like the awful cheap-ass China audio remotes (lookin at you Bose!).
I firmly believe there is a market for the concept, but my mom would not like this at all, 'nuff said.
In addition, to understand some of the biological and molecular aspects of disease an understanding of the sciences is absolutely vital. Otherwise physicians may as well be glorified plumbers (surgeons come to mind, but I digress...
While medicine is sometimes (rarely) an art rather than a science, the fundamentals are inherently scientific and need to be taught more rather than less.
