Messy is more productive than neat?

Oh my, can't wait for the flames to start flying.

This is for all you 'messy' people out there: "Sponsored by publisher Little, Brown and Co., the competition promoted "A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder," by Eric Abrahamson and David Freedman, a new book that argues neatness is overrated, costs money, wastes time and quashes creativity.
"We think that being more organized and ordered and neat is a good thing and it turns out, that's not always the case," said Freedman.
"Most of us are messy, and most of us are messy at a level that works very, very well for us," he said in an interview. "In most cases, if we got a lot neater and more organized, we would be less effective." "

See article for the other side's argument too.
