As more and more people continue to follow their joy, leave unpleasant 9 to 5 jobs, and start their own businesses, cool spaces like theOffice and Paragraph will likely grow, providing clean, quiet environments to get work done outside of the home. Kinkos and Starbucks are swell, but they pale in comparison to the atmosphere which these places seem to offer. Rather reminiscent of the wonderful Diogenes Club.Indeed, the desk sharing / coworking trend has grown apace; it is now easier than ever to find such havens thanks to sites like loosecubes ("rent a desk or a meeting room for a day, week, or month") and Desks Near Me ("helping freelancers get out of the house").
