The Great Good Place: Cafes, Coffee Shops, Community Centers, Beauty Parlors, General Stores, Bars, Hangouts and How They Get You Through the Day In his book The Great Good Place, Ray Oldenburg talks about the “Third Place” which forms a point of contact and relationship within a community. You can find more about Oldenburg and his thesis at the Project for Public Spaces, but the Blind Beggar has recently written a very good post on the subject. How does one get this kind of thing started? Well, that’s the big question. Several of the people in the little group I’m a part of has had a few conversations along these lines, and I’ve had a few myself with Jamie Arpin-Ricci, who is getting started on this himself… you can follow his progress and even pitch in a litte on the project.
