In software design, research supports that essential for consistently good work and high productivity are copious work space (including screen space) and freedom from interruptions. Common sense, no?

I'm sure that the same applies to tech writing. So, along with the cube v. office analysis, we also need to look at corporate culture.

(and then went on to talk about benefits of cubes).

but you can give people less space in a
cube (well, definitely less in a semi-cube).

The only space that is mine is a corner desk and the space for my chair, as
well as some space on a bookshelf and a file cabinet (both on the other side of
a public walkspace, as one cabinet behind me stores public materials). If I
were to have this little space in an office, #1: I couldn't have a door, unless it
opened into the hall or my office were larger, and #2: it would be claustrophobic.


On the other hand, I am much more productive
when I work from home, as I am not distracted by the surrounding
sounds/people.
