People are social primates, alphas like access to nonverbal cues for
reading and control of their supposed underlings. Same reasons for
concentrations in big cities: interaction density is higher for business
dinners while underlings are not too far away. Net ops are more like
hunter-gatherers than anything, so there's considerable culture clash.
