You're a tech start-up with no money but you need an office. Coloft in Santa Monica is emerging as a solution, offering shared work spaces, office equipment — and valuable intangibles. "It's sort of like a real-life social network," said Coloft co-founder Cameron Kashani. "We've got the printer, scanner, fax, Wi-Fi, fridge, microwave, coffee. But that's not the reason people come here. People come here because of the community, because of the other people that are here. " And, on any given weekday, a walk into Coloft offers up a taste of the L.A.-area's start-up scene, with entrepreneurs working side by side, sometimes offering each other advice and occasionally even collaborating on projects.

In 2004, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. was looking to hire an expert to handle an appeal, not to build a long-term relationship with another big-city attorney. The world's largest retailer had plenty of those, paying 250 law firms around the country about $200 million a year to represent its interests. Then the legal team at Wal-Mart met mild-mannered Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., a Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher partner. Now, he represents the company on a variety of matters around the U.S.

INDIO, Calif. - In the sprawl of desert scrub brush and freeway ramps that is this industrial part of Indio, the sun burns brightly in a barren office park. Light and shadows flash off the scorched asphalt, and the landscape is a spare palette of dusty brown, faded green and gray. Inside one tucked-away structure, however, artist Phillip K. Smith III is preparing to paint the sky red. Or pink. Or green, depending. FULL COVERAGE: Coachella 2014 "Welcome to the different sides of my brain," Smith says, leading the way through his studio, which looks like an airplane hangar and is filled with elements of a light installation premiering at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
