Working from home is a double-edged sword, in that without an office's rigid structure, maybe your mind will be freed up, or maybe you'll spend your days watching Brigitte Nielsen wield a double-edged sword. When working from home has turned into simply not working, try Desktime.
Developed by a Chi-town co-working hub, Desktime just expanded its service to Austin, offering an easy one-page web listing of shared work spaces available by the day/week/month, all readily bookable online and filterable by necessary amenities like 24hr access, shared printer, and high-speed internet, which always seems to outrun Wile. e-Coyote. The ATX currently shows 14 open workzones, including the Clubhouse, a 100-year-old home with a large backyard and two different wireless networks; Office on the Park, a wall-to-wall windowed room in a modern Eastside home along Lady Bird Lake; and East 7th St staple Conjunctured, boasting office supplies galore and all-you-can-drink espresso from Casa Brasil, so when you're too jittery to concentrate, you can Blame it on Rio. Enhanced facilities include the collaboration-friendly Public School design collective, the Juju Foto Factory (a 1050sqft studio with lighting kits, backdrops, and softboxes), and East Side Stages, whose amenities include a cyc wall that gives an infinity effect and sound-absorbing curtains ideal for recording small orchestras (the Boston Poppa Smurfs?).
Although Desktime is currently only listing spaces in Austin and Chicago, they soon plan on expanding to other cities, so wherever you live, you won't have to work there.
