Responding to my mail, 'For scribes, no-office scenario looms', Trivandrum-based (Kerala, India) journalist-entrepreneur Anil Philip had this to say:
"I started Kerala IT News in July 2009 and since then we have followed a completely online model - virtual office, online meetings using Skye / Gtalk, Google Docs, etc. The entire website was designed offshore (in UAE) without a single meeting (in person). All the discussions, changes / modifications and now maintenence and updation, is instructed through mails and chat. This is the future."
