that minimize commuting distances. This saves travel time and increases
productivity.

knowledge of computers. With more computer knowledge, more opportunities
become available in the Information Technology (IT) industry. You can work
as an information worker, also referred to as a _home and office user_. You
can also work as an IT professional or as a developer. This lesson
