Hi guys,

Some of you may know that for the last three years I've been trying to
set up a similar project, however my angle is I want to be able to use
the space for helping people find out more about free software.

I have a friend who is currently looking for a cafe to lease in London
- we had a possible in Archway but they were asking too much for what
was a short lease.

One of the hardest things I've found in my journey so far is
convincing the people with the money that it's worth investing in -
it's something which is apparent but unproven - I don't have that
problem with this person.

I've posted a seesmic video update which you can see on my blog here:

http://purkiss.com/2008/03/02/open-source-cafe-update/

It basically says we're looking for somewhere which is an existing
cafe as costs of starting from scratch are way too much, so this is
just a shout out to people to keep their eyes open for any possible
places...

Cheers,

Steve

Steve - glad to hear you're persevering.

I assume you're keeping an eye on what comes up on gumtree.com?

eg http://www.gumtree.com/london/85/14891585.html

Hi Lloyd,

Thanks for the link - just been spending the last few hours going through listing sites whilst listening to Deek create a song on riseandshine.tv - will add it to the list. I've been looking for contracts on gumtree and completely forgot it has property too!

Cheers,

Steve
