I would also be interested. It would be ok to do it on zoom.io but also think about the free open source Jitsi https://jitsi.org/ and the discord space I set up is also ok. https://discord.gg/vhAtztT
I know a lot of people prefer to support open source. What does everyone prefer at this point? I also experimented with mumble but there I think it might be a harder UX. Discord also might be a challenge for some people. Jitsi and zoom are easy to start. 🙂
I recently used collective/tools jitsi and it seemed more stable than jitsi once seemed to be. But the connection status still varied from Poor thro Moderate to Good. Mt partner in the chat had glitching prblems - but perhaps was their local bandwidth. I'd say meet.collective.tools was worth a go.

oh awesome! k, i joined but obviously too late. maybe we can just keep the room open for whenever anyone is working and people can pop in if they want to? maybe that would be distracting and defeat the purpose of the remote working though...
@emi @Matt_Noyes @GuerillaOntologist @mike_hales @Jon_Envisioneer @SocialCoop My understanding is that rooms are not persistent, they are simply created whenever the first person joins, and destroyed when the last person leaves. If you join an empty room, what you are actually doing is creating an entirely new room with the old name. Links will thus always work, but no history, password protection or the like will carry over between sessions.

Maybe it makes more sense to have a calendar that shows when people will be in the room, because during coworking there are usually only a few times during the day where you interact with others. For example, One coworking space I went to had a sort of protocol for gathering around lunch time and then for "Tea Time". So basically we can have a protocol for taking 10 - 20 minute breaks every other hour. and put them on a calendar.
It could be something like the daily scrum meeting dev teams use. https://www.scrum.org/resources/what-is-a-daily-scrum
