Coffeeshop workers in New York City

A pretty good New York Times article on people who spend a lot of time working in coffeeshops. My favorite: a matchmaker who works out of a “Nora Ephron-ish coffee shop in the West Village” rather than an office because it’s “easier to get people talking in a cafe.”

Essentially, cafes really have become cheap coworking space filled with cafe zombies.

[To the tune of Blur, “Coffee & TV,” from the album 13 (I give it 2 stars).]
