F13ers are allowed to move to Austin. Anyone else can bugger right off.

Well, now that you mention it....

Husband's friend lives in Austin, tells the husband that it's a great place, we should think about it.  I'm certainly not adverse to the idea of leaving Illinois, that's for sure.  Did a quick look on Indeed for project coordinator positions in Austin, found more than a page worth so that's something.  But no nothing about the city or the areas that are good to live in, which suburbs are better, transportation, etc.  Other than wiki or looking at the city's home page online, any resources?  Because one of these days, the husband will take me seriously when I tell him to look in other cities for a damn job.

I'm talking to company about a work-from-home job. Sounds great, but I'm not sure I can handle being in my house for 7 days a week. Has anyone here used coworking spaces or "rented" desks in shared workspaces? How was it? Worth the money?

Depends entirely on the workspace and your preferences, really. There's coworking spaces where you basically get your own room or can get a desk in "silent/working zone" with "boxes" where you can go for telcos etc. Then there's the open spaces which can be quite chaotic depending on how many startups are in there.
All serious coworking spaces will however allow you to do a tour and even trial times for free/reduced rates, so I'd just look around what's available in your region and try out what feels right. If it's worth the money again depends on you. If you don't want to be "stuck" at home and otherwise don't get out much other than for work then yes, you'll probably want to view the rent as an investment towards your mental health.

You'd be surprised by how easy it is to adjust to working from home.

The appeal of Austin neighborhoods depends solely on your income. Contrary to popular opinion, the traffic here is manageable. Sure a couple highways suck but depending on what you like doing getting around isn't really that bad. I'm on the east side permanently now and I can get up north during rush hour taking back roads with little effort. Basically, don't worry about what so much as the "how much."

Thanks! I did see a few offered a couple of trial days at their locations, I'll give them a whirl.   There's a few that have membership options that let you grab a desk at any of their locations, not just in Denver but in other major cities too - that could be good, since I'll be traveling around when I'm not at home. Plus free coffee and beer? Hmm.

Does anyone think Austin traffic is bad?  Well, I suppose some people do, but just google a bit and that will be cleared up.

Everyone thinks the traffic they live in is bad.  I had a process review engagement in Evansville, IN a few weeks ago, population 200k.  One of the principals apologized for being late due to "heavy traffic."  Wut?

I would be like: "So, how many hours a day do you spend in the car?"

Then look deep into the eyes.

I don't know why I thought it was weird that I got a LinkedIn recruitment message from LinkedIn, but it felt weird.  I mean, what else would they use?

Friend reached-out to me and asked if I'd be interested in taking a CAD/ BIM/ Tech position at Universal in Florida. I just took a new position here in January, but it's tempting.

That's a tough one.  How is Universal as an employer?

Also, if you do get it, I'm going to ask for an employee discount.

They think owning the content will make them more money, with the content running over their pipes. (See removal of net neutrality for more reasons). They now own AOL and Yahoo. (Both to be run as a single unit by AOLs Tim Armstrong).

Yahoo remains one of the top internet info providers doesn't it? I don't know if that's changed since I first heard it 4-5 years ago.  Control the content, control the world.  "Oh, sorry AT&T, you've got to pay more." Same thing, Sprint, Comcast, Spectrum, etc.

Yahoo has a lot of software patents, especially in the ad space iirc. That plus the ad platform was why MS was trying to buy them a few years back.

Also a good point. Lots of reasons to buy them unrelated to the goofy name and keeping the company open.

Didn't know about the ad patents.  That's basically all anyone does to make money on the intertubes.  Including us.
