Thanks for the summary!
> 3. Private office 24%
> 4. Shared office 15%
Interesting to know that 40% of folks can still close a door on whoever's
not in their office. That's not been *my* _recent_ experience, so it's good
to hear that quite concentration time is still valued (as shown by the
increased cost of offices) in the IT market place.
I seem to remember that Demarco & Lister (in "Peopleware") suggested about
150 square feet for folks. That resonated with me. I bought a huge desk
(by todays standards) just so I could spread out all my paper (specs,
references, scrap paper, notes) to help me move toward the "paperless" world
in my computer. I use white boards, stickeys, colored markers, and lots of
other visuals to help solve a problem. A standard desk doesn't let me work.
I get into a "thrashing" problem where I spend more time reshuffling my
papers than I do putting work into the code.
Any thoughts on that front?
