Doc <dlettvin -at- attbi -dot- com> quoted an article in Wired 4.08 about bullpen
seating and the development of Quake. The article contained this passage:

>> [T]he whole team ... went to work in one large
>> war room. Low tables lined the walls; every inch of counter space was
>> occupied by computers and notepads, reference books, soda cans, and
>> personal CD players ... The only privacy to be found was between
>> the padded earpieces of headphones.

Why did they need personal CD players?

And in such seating arrangements, where does the boss sit?
