GeneralThe software industry's debt to South/Central America Pin

So I was cleaning my coffee grinder this morning and dropped the little feeder thingie, which proceeded to chip off a number of important bits. After a brief panic, I managed to super-glue it back together, but it reminded me of the perhaps oft casually considered but seldom spoken debt that the software industry owes to South/Central America.

Could it actually even be over-estimated? I'm not sure it could. How many lines of code a year are written under the influence of coffee? What's one of the few, or possible even the only, consistently free amenity that software companies offer their employees?

Of course coffee isn't the only stimulative product from Central America, and others may have often contributed. But coffee is far and away the fuel that powers the software industry. You'd think that the big companies would have long since made moves to consolidate their control over this important resource, sort of the way the US moved to control pitchblende deposits in the early 40s once it became apparent what sort of energies here hiding in there.
