Thanks for the replies Lars, Kumar, and Jon. 

So, it sounds like 1871 would make the most sense, IF it is possible to find quiet areas for Vidyo calls. Can one of the Foundation folks currently using the 1871 space chime in on that question? 

I'm happy to contact Robert once that is confirmed.

I second Lars’ comments, include the thanks. 

Also, I feel I should announce that I’m a (long-term) contractor and not a full-time employee. So maybe only give my opinions 75% of the weight of others. :D

2) Or, we can find a totally different space either together (preferable :) or separately. This will give us flexibility around dedicated desks, quiet areas, and location. As I mentioned before, after some fairly extensive research I was only able to find one space that would entertain a "part-time" membership (Design Cloud). Would anyone be interested in pursuing that space? Any other ideas? 


I'm open to new spaces. I don't have a lot of time to do research but I can try to help. 

I'm fine with either, since I would probably be down somewhat infrequently and mainly to be looking to be around other people, as opposed to having another space as quiet as my home office. So, 1871 is probably slightly more attractive to me, since I could distract more MoFo people there :-) 

Thanks, Gemma, for looking into this!
