Brendan Byrnes: Yeah, what are some companies, in particular, that you see that are implementing this well and what can we learn from them?

Maynard Webb: Well, obviously I'm the Chair of LiveOps, and we have the world's largest distributed workforce that works from home and 20,000 people in the call center so I think we do that well. I believe eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) has done a good job of enabling entrepreneurs to create businesses out of their house.

I also think a lot of innovative companies are letting people work from home more than ever before and think about the fact that new people don't have to come to your location, they can actually stay where their families are and still do good work.
