    I know about all kinds of coffee shops. I love them and have wasted far too much time in them, as well as occasionally having accomplished something worthwhile, and I have to drag myself out of one at the moment. I don’t mind chatter, but cell phone talking is IMHO very rude. It’s usually loud and I find hearing just one side of a conversation to be very disconcerting.

    Oh man!

    Two of my favorite podcasters, “the professional left” just went OFF about this!

    They hate it. They think most people will hate it.

    I am extremely likely to be in the minority on this one.

    Just an update. I’ve been asking people. Many don’t know about it yet. Today, I’m visiting the Starbucks near where I work. Sometimes I get a late evening coffee there, just before close. Those baristas are good conversation.

    Can’t wait to get their take.

    Too late. It’s over. Starbucks pulled it.

    But, I still get their take anyway.

    I know those two guys well enough to get some info on how it all went.

    More notably, it’s totally worth seeing a big misalignment here and learning from it. I thought it a pretty fine idea, and clearly most just didn’t.

    That’s something I like to drill down on and understand better.

    Gouge, your meter is finally used correctly!
