YES. Well written. The fallacy that open work spaces will foster collaboration has never been true in my experience; when I worked at a large Ad agency in a bullpen we would scatter when it was time to be heads-down and get things done. The noise, the distractions (my desk-partner poured Planter’s peanuts into his hand and crunched them up all. day. long.) and the interruptions were just too much to take. Forget trying to have a phone call or Skype meeting. I have a cube now, and I’m embarrassed to admit it, I like it very much.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
