11:00amEmail hour is finished. We've solved all of our customers' technical and personal problems, forged business ties, and elevated our inboxes to a state of Zen emptiness.
2:00pmThe team has finished an astonishing number development tasks. We meet in the middle of the studio and stare at each other in stunned silence, and then collectively resolve to keep the flow going in the remaining work hours.
4:00pmThe Starcraft alarm goes off. We steel ourselves.
6:00pmWe've crushed our enemies, seen them driven before us, and heard the lamentation of their women. So we settle down to work on personal projects that push the boundaries of beauty, technical achievement, and decency.
8:00pmI bid my teammates a fond farewell, slightly choken up because I won't see them again for more than half the day.
