    Everyone In Coffee Shop Billing For Their Time

    February 20, 2006 | Issue 42•08

    CHICAGO—All 17 customers at Chicago's Urn coffee shop were billing third parties for time spent there. "The people on laptops are web designers, unless they have big headphones—those are either musicians or producers," said the Urn's owner, Maria Carmichael, who wrote her coffee shop's business plan in a coffee shop. "And Mario, who bills for time spent here even though he shouldn't, sells espresso machines." Carmichael added that she conducts her second career, as a theater manager, on her Powerbook, using the cafe's wireless connection.

    I wish we had free wireless at cafés down here. Granted we don't really like the chain places and they're the only ones with the cash to give away access but it would still be nice to see a free hot spot every now and then.

    I abhor the state of information technology down here, I got a taste of what it could be like in the states and Canada while I was there and coming back here has really got me annoyed.
