Working in Starbucks

In teaching I mentioned the attractions of Starbucks coffee as a place to get down to some work with a laptop and a wireless Internet connection. It seems from http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan/20/barack-obama-inauguration-us-speech as though others have the same idea!

I did wonder at the time whether this was partly evidence of a strategic alliance between Starbucks and the Guardian, given that the Guardian is now being sold in Starbucks. I note that somebody at the BBC has had the same thought, expressed at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/magazinemonitor/2009/02/paper_monitor_628.shtml with some interesting observations on their reporting of a row between the CEO of Starbucks and the British politician Peter Mandelson
