    Hi, Bryn,
    Intriguing account of your coworking stint. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ve been thinking of joining one here in Boulder, at least 1-2x/week, like you. But what do you do when you need to interview people via phone, or a source calls for an interview, and you’re surrounded by other coworkers? Can you duck into a conference room for privacy on the spot, or do you need to reserve a conf room well in advance?
    Thanks! Susan

    Thanks for your perspective on co-working Bryn, it is very helpful! I feel like it’s something I should have looked at doing a LONG time ago. Oh well, water under the bridge at this point…
