The myth of the efficiency of colocation in IT was created by software engineers from the First World to protect their wage level against programmers from India, China, Brasil, …
To protect the myth against critical reviews, they injected it into the sacrosanct frameworks of Scrum, XP …
Ironically the evangelists of colocation love Selenium, *the* framework for browser automation. But the Selenium project has no location – committers, contributers and supporters are spread all over the world and they colaborate in a chatroom based on antique technologies.

… it’s just polemics, don’t ask me for evidence.
