So everybody’s been talking about co-working in San Francisco, and I thought I’d try it. Co-working facilities fill the niche that lies somewhere between schlepping your laptop to Starbucks, and toiling in a traditional office cubicle. They’re shared facilities for people who need workspace and/or companionship, and most have monthly membership fees. I checked out Sandbox Suites for a day. With a scrappy startup vibe, they have two floors of desks, communal space and meeting rooms. Facilities like printers, fax machines, coffee, and wifi complete the experience. Though the day I went was rather quiet (they are still growing their clientele), I got a lot done though, and enjoyed being in a different setting with someone to talk to other than the cat. My plan is to go once or twice a week now.
