Computer technology In the 1990s, people witnessed an explosion of computer technology—both in America and around  the globe, which has in turn led to a change in how and where people work.  Telecommuters  are  employees of agencies or business firms who work full-time or part-time at home instead of in the  office. They connect to their offices via electronic networking: phone, computer, e-mail, and fax.  Telecommuting allows employees to work under supervisors in another state or country. This form of  employment especially helps disabled individuals who are unable to leave home or travel to an  office, as well as working parents of young children.  The Internet —the world's largest computer network—has revolutionized electronic networking. The  number of people using the Internet continues to double annually, with at least 50 percent of all  Americans “online” in 2000.
