Speaking as someone who does a lot of remote work, I can honestly say
that for the right opportunity (e.g. the chance to work with a
particularly bright team) I could be persuaded to lower my rate and/or
The contracts I cherish are the onces that give me the opportunity
(though not usually 100% of working hours) interact through the face
with other professionals. I find local working groups and interest
groups very valuable for this (when I can find time to do it), but I am
probably lucky in spending a lot of time around DC and some round NYC,
both major IT markets.
