The open-plan office is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea

We’re squandering human health and potential on an epic scale by forcing the vast majority of people who dislike or hate the open office into that configuration. Their work deteriorates, their job satisfaction declines. And for what? Because a minority of people kinda like that configuration? Because it’ll look good in a few photos? Because it’ll impress strangers who visit the office? Get outta here.

@DHH has been a very vocal critic of the open office, but it’s pretty hard to argue with most of the points he has been making.
