As for software development, yes, technically I can develop from pretty much anywhere in the world... provided I have a decent connection with which to discuss things with clients and/or send & receive data. It's the connection that is the problem, not the ability to do the job. I've been successfully working in a home-office for sometime now, but it has an ADSL2+ connection to handle the almost nightly upload/download of 400Mb interim software & data updates.
Perhaps retail software is the go.
Why not setup a development machine somewhere with a decent conection and merely remote into that machine to do your work. There are many online services for this like Logmein.com. If you are firewall savy you could set this up using RDP or SSL telnet.
