Yahoo! says no more working from home: Is this really about telecommuting?

Yahoo! has said no more working from home, "all hands on deck" and suggests that if you can't interact with other people, you can't innovate.

I find this interesting since, I would argue, that inspiration was private, but now our new keyword is innovation, which requires a team. Can you really only come up with new ideas in a group--or are we really arguing that the execution of ideas requires a team effort that has to happen over coffee (and not over Skype)? What do you think?
