This “remains first and foremost a social project, and not a business model”
This is an interesting approach to Cafe Time.. — link removed —
I visited a cafe recently and notes that the chap next to me has a pile of daily papers, and an empty coffee cup. He was still there when I left – still working his way though the pile of papers with the empty cup. I have seen this happen a few time – it appears as if some folk spends hours occupying a table for the price of a coffee. It must drive the owners nuts!!!.
Although the above article is not claiming this is solution to that problem – I bet it would fix it.
