Telecommuters, you are now Cloudworkers

At least, you are according to the most popular entry in a contest sponsored by Plantronics to find a term to replace the so-20th century "telecommuter." According to a survey also conducted by the vendor, there are a lot of us cloudworkers out there--more than half of respondents said they work from home at least one day a week--and half of them say they are more productive when they do so. Also, 36% of knowledge workers say they're traveling less, and 40% are spending more time in teleconferences (cloudconferences?).
