> It was exactly as you described your office. It was not even three in the afternoon, and they had some loud European techno playing.

...but that's... not how I described the office in question.




From the grandparent post:

We stayed up very late, listened to loud music

To me, the two are related. You stay late because there's loud music playing. If it was quiet, you'd get your work done and go home at a reasonable hour. Instead, you have to deal with loud music, co-workers playing foosball, people coming and going behind you, and as a result, you don't end up leaving until 9pm or later.

That's a presumption, unstated in the comment, and it is incorrect.

I have worked at... I don't know how many co-working and incubator spaces. And of those, some had a very socially lubricated environment at night that sometimes included loud- (or even live-) music.

But never have I experienced loud music during the day except on some special occasion (ie holiday party or something).


I dislike all music, not just in a programming setting. I would not be productive in such a situation.
