This resonated with me personally:
We are no longer a culture that respects silence. The extroverts have won. Everything must be done collaboratively. Everyone must be available to everyone, all the time. There should be no more personal space, and no ownership of work. Basically, we believe that two heads are always better than one.
I currently work in a pair-programming exclusive company, and after a year and a half I’ve decided that no amount of forcing it will cause me to like it.
