My dream is doing programming for myself, hence the creation of Mattorama Heavy Industries, and if I get the chance to make money doing that, I'm seriously considering setting something like this up. My only fear is having to deal so much with running the space that I don't get to work on my own things but that's probably the business equivalent of premature optimization, worrying about things that won't end actually being a problem. I don't think it would take much money to get started either, which is a bonus.
For more info, check out this NYTimes article on a space focussed on writers, and this blog post about ideal working environments. If you're in Albuquerque and have think this is a good idea, please comment on this post. I'd love to hear there's a ton of interest in this type of environment here in town.
