I guess one common way to get over the loneliness of working for yourself is to work out of a coffeeshop.
But, given my recent ergonomic adventures, I have been a little reluctant to do that for fear of my hands hurting from prolonged laptop typing.
Plus, it just seems superdorky to walk into a coffeeshop with your own keyboard.
Well, I'm a dork.
I'm at a cofeeshop right now with my keyboard sitting comfortably on my lap and mostly out of sight under the table. You'll have to ask the other people here how dorky they think I look.
For the most part I've been pretty productive, minus the distraction of listening to some startup deals taking place (that was very informative)
