Plugging away at the Starbucks

Posted on December 22, 2010


There’s a line in The Grand Spectacular’s riff on hipsters, Being a dickhead is cool, that goes “pluggging on my laptop at the Starbucks down the road”. The song itself is love/hate ode to hipsters in the UK and probably around the world. Today I’ve spent several hours working on my mac at a Starbuck near a friends web development office and I feel as hipster as anyone can be.

My love/hate feelings for dirty wizards aside it seems as though Starbucks cafes have become the de facto offices for freelance techies. What with it’s free wifi and coffee and tea availability it’s basically primed for this task. Hopefully I can complete some long overdue projects here.
