Simpler is always better.

As far as I’m concerned, the simpler things are, the better. My life gets complicated enough all on its own without me getting in the way and making things worse. As an example, within the same five years, I was out of work for one year, got divorced and survived cancer. I’m almost afraid to find out what God might throw at me next.
In any case, one of the more complicated things I’ve done over the years is manage remote users. Under the best of circumstances, it can be a real challenge. When you consider all the ways to do it and all the tools that exist to serve these folks, well, things can get out of hand pretty quickly.

So, you can bet I perked up when I saw this article over at TechRepublic: 6 Technologies to Enhance Mobile Workers and Take the Pain Out of Managing Them. I’m not sure I agree with all their choices, or how much pain some of them take out of remote user management, but it’s an interesting place to start.
