[Baypiggies] considering starting a Open Source collective

I *really* like the idea and have thought of it this often. I know  
people in different areas that would do something similar if there  
were others close to them. However, it needs to be fairly close to be  
effective for me. If you were in San Francisco, I'd seriously consider  

This is a great discussion point. Maybe we'll get several small  
collectives (like one in SF; one in Concord; one closer to where you  
live, etc.) San Francisco does have Sandbox Suites (http://www.sandboxsuites.com/ 
) which seems to be the same and seems *very* cost effective to me  
depending upon which package you need.

Good luck with the collective...  Times are tough for *all* of us  
right now, so we understand. (Frankly, I'm hoping my current customer  
pays his invoice early or I won't have rent money -- it's gotten that  
bad for me). But, we'll get through it eventually.

All the best,
