Terra Bite

I think I need to go visit Kirkland, WA now. They've got this new coffee shop, see, and I like coffee. First of all, the place is owned by a Google developer and is named "Terra Bite," which is hilarious enough for me to want to stop by. But the completely cool and completely crazy part is that they apparently work on a "voluntary" payment system. As in, you decide how much you feel like paying, and then you pay that much. No prices on the menu, no cash register, no tip jar. And they have free wireless! What more could I possibly want?

Holy shit! I guess that says something about how much they pay Google developers... o_O

Ooooh... but reading their web page, it kinda makes sense. Some people will exploit the system, but enough will pay in so that the people who can't afford will be covered. Interesting!

I was just wondering the other day this kind of shop would be possible. It's very interesting to see someone actually trying it.

And in this situation - very nice! Coffee, 'net, everything someone need to focus and work, or relax and hangout.

Anyway, the real reason I'm here is to thank you for your comment on my blog yesterday, and concede that you were absolutely right! :)
