The Rise of the New Groupthink - NYTimes.com

Much of what this article points out resonates with me. I do a lot more planning, trouble shooting and support than programming nowadays but when I'm trying to track down a weird glitch on someone's system, actually programming or debugging when conversations are going on in three cubicles surrounding me it can make it tough to focus. If it's difficult to keep a train of thought going or trace what's going on in my own code much less someone else's if there's constant conversation or frequent interruptions.
