CNN.COM Calls it "Co-Working," Another Name for Virtual has a great article on yet another type of virtual company entrepreneur, only they call it "co-working." I call it working out of a cafe virtually, but making sure your friends drop by . . .

For all the details, here's the URL:

ROSWELL, Georgia (CNN) -- More than a decade after the Internet allowed millions of people to work at home, the next phase of telecommuting involves, well, not working at home. art.jelly.ho.randall.jpg

Web developer Toby Ho, left, has joined a coworking group called "Jelly" in Roswell, Georgia.

Organized "coworking" -- the concept of working solo alongside like-minded independents -- has spread to dozens of cities.

The irony of coworking isn't lost on organizers, including Kevin Bachman, who set up a group north of Atlanta as part of an informal Web-based network called Jelly.

"The reason people work alone, is because they're looking for freedom," said Bachman, a 34-year-old Web developer who telecommutes part time. "It may be ironic that you crave isolation, but you also want to be socially interactive with others like you." See how Jelly works together »

Once a month, Bachman's group takes over a room provided by Tony's American Grille & Tap. A handful of home-based Internet workers hunch over laptops writing code, tweaking administration systems or enhancing databases.
