Creative types and work-from-homers: Is your daily commute from bed to couch? Do you call your houseplants co-workers and your cat the IT guy?
Consider plugging into Io/LA (Io stands for input/output), a new co-work space venture from a groovy bunch, including Myspace co-founder Aber Whitcomb, musician/producer Donovan Leitch, and actor/producer Chris Gartin in association with physical social network WeWork.
A freelancer-friendly, month-by-month full membership fee provides 24/7 access to individual desk spaces, state-of-the-art printing stations, conference rooms, private phone booths, and a postproduction facility for filmmakers.
At the open-to-the-public cafe, like-minded folk connect over scones and mugs of Bru coffee. Incubator/mentor programs afford start-up visionaries the opportunity to powwow with leading industry experts.
Instead of back-to-back meetings with Mr. Meow Face.
Io/LA, 7083 Hollywood Boulevard, between El Cerrito Place and North Sycamore Avenue, Hollywood (iola.la). A full membership costs $395 per month; virtual membership costs $195 per month. To apply, go to iola.la/membership.
