an argument for telecommuting
I remember learning someplace that it takes the average person 45 minutes to regain mental focus after they've been interrupted. I think of this often when I'm in "the code zone," am asked to break away in order to do something silly and then can't remember what I was doing when I return to my desk.
I wish I could find that study - I could pass it out to managers everywhere as an argument for things like telecommuting and office doors and against things like pointless meetings, loud employees, and stupid questions...
