Liking this a lot:
“Coworking is cafe-like community/collaboration space for developers, writers and independents. Or, itâ€™s like this: start with a shared office and add cafe culture. Which is the opposite of most modern cafes.”
Nice idea indeed. Anything like that in Berlin yet? Haven’t seen it. Then again, coffee & wifi culture is very sophisticated over here anyway. Still…
(Hey, remember Mercedes Bunz’s article “Urbane Penner” in Zitty Mag, Berlin? Uh, here’s a google-translated version. Nope, it doesn’t quite translate, but there you go. Skip the headline.)
During the day, the atmosphere at Oberholz (Rosenthaler Platz) is quite so, just like in Barcelonas cafÃ© Ciutat close to pl St Jaume..
