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.

It's tempting to suggest that this column about "Work/Space: Visual Relations Incorporate" (at the UC Irvine Art Gallery through Feb. 8) should be read only by people with advanced degrees and specialized talents who have toiled at low-level office jobs.

October 8, 2006 | Emory Holmes II, Emory Holmes II is a Los Angeles-based writer. His short story "aka Moises Rockafella" will appear in "The Best American Mystery Stories 2006," to be published this month.
Joseph Nazel kept a pistol tucked in his desk, but he seldom showed it. He preferred to fight his battles--and, trust me, there were lots of them--with rhetoric, invective and a withering wit. Joe, who died in late August of brain cancer at age 62, was an editor and author of incalculable importance to L.A.'s African American community, particularly to the readers, artists and writers he championed and served throughout his career.

A new hotel rate during New York's coldest months will do much to warm visitors' hearts, with prices dropping below $100. You'll get all the electronic conveniences found in more expensive hotels -- flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, etc. The catch: You share a bathroom. The deal: At the Pod Hotel, at 230 E. 51st St., the cheapest accommodation is a single pod room. You may have to share a bathroom with strangers, but you get stylish digs with a twin bed, workspace, WiFi, iPod docking station and LCD TV. I found one of these pod rooms in January for just $79 per night (pretax)
