Thanks for reformatting your post. I couldn't read it for the same reasons you don't snort coke without first forming discrete lines... it's easier for consumption.

Have you heard of B-corporations? [http://www.bcorporation.net/about/]

Slightly different scope, but something you might want to talk about in a future post.

This thread is becoming unreadable. Is there another structure we can use? Wiki? Basecamp? Bueller?

As per usual, day of burn out to follow. But, looking back, man did we get a lot done. Well done, all!

The Idea: DeskSpace Real Estate

The Concept: Website that enables companies to rent unused office space to those needing just a desk or small office working environment; not necessarily those needing an entire office.

The Money: Nominal listing fee a la Craig's List. Sponsored, non-obtrusive ads.

Why It Would Work: Many firms look to rent out unused desk space, but I haven't yet found a portal that consolidates these listings.** Given the sheer amount of freelancers and startups nowadays that recognize the need to establish a working environment external of their living space as well as the desk space that goes unused in larger law, accounting, design, and professional firms, we can play matchmaker. Because, after a while, working alone in your apartment sucks.

Competition: Numerous office-space searches. I haven't found one that's easy to use. I recently tried using Search Office Spaces for my own purposes and have received 6 phone calls in the last 3 hours... which is 5 more than I requested. Many suffer from shady-looking sites. Also, I don't think any of these sites caters to the---to use a tired, overused, and stale expression---long-tail market.

Thoughts?

I like this... it's like a mobile seamlessweb, but with pickup option.
