I work from home, but I think I'm much more productive around other professionals who are also (or at least appear to be) working hard. I wondered if there are any websites where people could make themselves available via web cam (even if informally organized through Google Hangout sessions) and groups of two or more people would do their own things in the virtual presence of others.
Coffitivity is a great site—but I'm too familiar with the looped samples now.
In New York City, I used to use Loosecubes to find free coworking spaces, before they shut down. I now live in the west coast, but the only coworking space near me costs $375/mo., which is not only a bit steep for a productivity boost, but also provides sectioned "offices" (hence the price tag) as opposed to the open space that I prefer. I think a virtual solution would be ideal for me.
