From my 'nomadic' thoughts to San Francisco 'Bedouins'
In the follow the thread realm, Where Neo-Nomads' Ideas Percolate by Dan Frost in The San Francisco Chronicle (March 11) somehow relates to the Live and Work Anywhere ideas I toyed with earlier today.
No Camels or Tea served here. The article on San Francisco coffeehouses highlights the connection between Free Wi-Fi , Coffee Shops and Geeks.
Dan Pink who is mentioned in the article pointed to the same link in Free Agent Nation a few years back.
I do agree with Timothy Ferriss that Coffee Shops might not always be the best place for a meaningful conversation or steady work.
A quiet space such as my very own home office in my new digs works better for me.
Maybe for some it is a way to feel important and be on display while for others it is the most practical choice.
I first noticed the Bedouin story on Signal vs Noise.
