The average Fog Creek developer has 694 square inches of screen real-estate, 2 desktop computers, and an Aeron chair. Most have private offices with windows and doors.
Related to this, I’m reading Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams right now, which is the book Spolsky swears by for managing software development teams.
Also, I think Blend is going to break down and buy a bunch of Aerons. We cheaped out on original chairs, and it’s time to upgrade — my back hurts. We have a bunch of Herman Miller chairs floating around the office right now, and we’re moving between them, trying to find one that our butts find acceptable.
Never before has my butt been tasked with such an important decision.
