[clug] Perl programming in Japan for a year

Leaving aside all the rather bizarre back-and-forth over whether people 
looking for jobs should use the CLUG list as a source of information...

What I want to know is why work in Tokyo at all?  Surely most of the work 
can be done in the comfort of your own home, and the communication can be 
done using VPN connections and telephones?  Sure, it'd be nice to live in 
Tokyo for a while, having studied Japanese and all, but I don't feel like 
leaving nice warm Canberra and my partner; and I wonder if I actually need 
to?  (I've written to them to find out, anyway...)

How many other people on the list end up doing 'work' not at the actual 
place of employment?  (I know Tridge does, sort of, for instance...)

Have fun,


P.S. as someone looking for work in the programming and sysadmin field I 
welcome anyone making a tactful, relatively simple and unobtrusive 
statement about the presence of such work.
