I rarely work in coffee shops. Libraries or the park, occasionally. I seem to write best by just buckling down at my desk. The street noise – especially when it’s recess time in the nearby playground – is just enough to keep me going. I’ve tried music, but then I get distracted and start making playlists and fooling around on iTunes or fiddling with Pandora stations.
But I know tons of folks LOVE coffee shops for their lively but low-key ambience. Now you can get your buzz on at home, thanks to Coffitivity!
A new website, Coffitivity – notice the blend of coffee and creativity? – aims to increase your creativity and productivity by streaming coffee house sounds to your computer or mobile device.
I’m trying it right now and it’s not doing it for me. (What can I say? I’m a tea person.) But I bet it works GREAT for lots of other folks.
