I originally had opened the studio in New York to combine my two loves, music and design.

As I realized, just like with many, many things in my life that I actually love, I adapt to it. And I get, over time, bored by them.

They're happy when they're not underutilized - when they're not bored - and also when they're not overburdened with inappropriate specifications or meaningless bureaucracies. In other words, programmers are happiest when they're working efficiently. This is a general preference in creative work.
Eric S. Raymond
