Moleskine opened up its first official store in Milan, Italy. I’m looking forward to the day it comes stateside. Ever since Barnes and Noble downsized and closed a bunch of stores, Starbucks and Peet’s have been the only consistent go-to coffee houses for getting work done.
While coffee shops were the original social networks, Tom Standage points out, coffee shops today represent a ‘third place,’ between work and home. They provide just the right frequency of sound to inspire creativity and focus without having to the extremes– the bar for socializing or the library to work in silence.
America needs more cafes. And not the trendy ones that prohibit wifi and computer outlets. People want think and get shit done, even if it’s a mindless activity like checking email.
