Apple is about to do something their programmers definitely don’t want.

For companies (and non-profits like that can’t afford separate offices for every engineer on staff, this is actually a pretty hard problem to solve. The best way we’ve found to mitigate the open-office effect is a flexible work-from-home policy, which helps a lot. But I still feel the pain when I see coders in the office, trying (as I do) to use their headphones as a substitute for walls.

Makes me think: Funders who really want to see an explosion of effective civic tech should support tech non-profits with the kind of unrestricted money that affords us world-class work environments.
