Article on telecommuting , noting that a recent report suggests more Mainers are commuting - either by car or computer - to out-of-state jobs. Jack Cashman, commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development, says the presence of telecommuters proves the state's appeal and is a source of future economic strength. Others argue that in-state residents are being forced to telecommute for out-of-state companies because Maine lacks the quality jobs and pay they want. The report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston shows that Maine was economically stagnant in 2005. With comments by Brad Hershbein, the analyst who authored the report; Alan Stearns, senior policy analyst for Gov. John Baldacci; telecommuter Marcia Chappell; and Joe Kumiszcza, executive director of MESDA, the state's information technology industry association.
