After the flood in Jakarta - is space/place still relevant?

This morning, i once again came back to home after 1,5 hours riding under the rain on my way to the office.

For any of you who lives in Jakarta must be already know how bad the flood, not only for our family but also for business too.
For example, my office in located in Kelapa Gading North Jakarta. Because the flood is so bad in that area, our office is running less than half its capacity. Bad, very bad...

On the other hand, i enjoy watching Heroes (its a new tv series). One of the main caracter is Hiro, a Japanese worker that has the ability to bend time and space. He can be where ever and when ever he want, snap! just like that.

So what is the connection between this stories?

Maybe nothing.
But it made me wondering. Is place is still relevant these days.?
Do we all have to cross the city for 1 to 2 hours a day for working something that we can do it elsewhere?
Why can we be just like Hiro, where time and space/place are no longer relevant?
We can work anywhere, anytime. There are no space-time limit.
We decide the time. We decide the space/place...

It would be great isnt it?

Thats what im trying to do these day.
And all thanks to the power of the internet.

You can doit also if you want to.
All you have to do is switch you paradigm.
