people are really that damn careless with devices?

if i'm in public and i'm getting up from a table and the laptop may be out of sight it gets packed up, even at the library.

never leave the gear in a publicly visible and unattended are, so the laptop never rides in my backseat

if i'm riding with someone in a vehicle where the gear can be seen it goes inside the building with me

Very few successful businesses include the phrase "will meet at a coffeeshop with a laptop" in their business plan. Just sayin'. If you can't afford to either spruce up a home office, or even get a virtual office, you may want to seek further investment before starting a business. Until then, it just seems like a side hobby.

It's good to espresso little concern about coffeehouse safety.

Not familiar with regus, but basically those places that sublet small occasional-use offices for folks just wanting to use an office occasionally. A business can get them for $80 or so a month, for a somewhat more professional presence.

Of course I realize someone's going to get steamed that I'm defending subby and feel the need to venti their feelings...

$400 a month if you're in Manhattan. There can be good reason to meet at a coffee shop when you're just starting up something like an engineering office (where you can grow quickly once you land a job).

yeah, I want to do business with some guy working out of a coffee house.

I'll give that there are always exceptions to the rule, but you wouldn't expect to get one night in a manhattan motel for $80 either. But even that engineering firm still can't expect to appear all that professional when they're operating out of a coffee shop.

where else are you gonna exchange Bit Coins for meth

The REAL problem is not Internetting. It's having too many coffee-based products while you do your business. You find yourself doing business as a squatter in the restrooom. Then the manager will ask ya to leave because the electricity use by the vent fan is way to high. a co-working office is always the best bet for the single businessman. One with a front secretary, so ya gots a phone number to go with a permanent office. A storefront (ground floor) is not advisable, but DON'T make customers climb stairs to get there, it looks bad.

As someone who works in Starbucks Customer Relations and hears about this shiat everyday, I'm getting a kick. Too many kicks, really. In the balls.

I'm more annoyed that you find these guys and students hording the few available tables all while sipping on one small coffee over a full 2 hours. It's increasingly hard to just come into a coffee shop with a few people, and sit down for 10-20min for a drink and snack.

Depends on the business actually... Im a photographer, and meet up at my local coffee house with clients all the time. I also do a lot of client meetings at their business, because I do a lot of corporate photography, and it's just easier for everyone involved.

I do some contract drafting and I'll meet clients at their place usually

I've used a coffee shop as a place to work, especially if there's a lot going on at the house

Yep... Im pretty sure "Oh here, let my put my wolf outside before you come in." is not exactly what anyone in a suit wants to hear either.

I don't know, that's almost novel enough that some people may take you up on it just to see the wolf

mind you, i know next to nothing about wolves, but how do they react to new people coming into what they consider their territory?

They cower, then they hide... Poor babies :(

Of course, if you get down on his level, and feed him a piece of cheese, he will be your friend FOR LIFE MAN!!! YOU ROCK! JUST KEEP FEEDING ME CHEESE DUDE!

Then again, having a 145lbs wolf jumping and begging at you is not the most... settling feeling.

So yea... I don't mesh home and clients ;)
