Music broke out today. It happened without warning. A C# developer with an acoustic guitar started playing Bang A Gong. Softly at first, then stronger, with some heavy base lines. After a few bars another guy blended in with some high seventh notes. The silence in the coding pit cracked, then shattered. The deadline intensity that had hung in the air all week began to drop away. The office began to pulse. A .NET developer, who fronts for a punk rock band on weekends, tapped in. Dirty and sweet, dressed in black, don’t look back… That wicked T.REX backbeat drove it home.
Creative environments feed off chill time. So now we’re all loose and cool. And ready for more slammin’.
