At some point in the last 50 years, somebody somewhere looked at a bunch of computer programmers and decided: “Aha, so it’s office work!”

We all totally understand and accept that script writers need their own dedicated work spaces. Their own offices, if you like. They need inspiration. Gourmet coffee. A view. That’s why so many of them work at home. They need space. Expanse. An environment they can control.

Computer programmers, says The Man, need none of these things. You don’t need your own office, with a view and gourmet coffee, to produce valuable software. No, you just need enough desk space to plonk your computer on and maybe a couple of manuals, right? Because you’re just an office worker, yes?
