That's interesting.  You could also share business expenses I suppose; FAX 
machines, etc.  In a way I think that working with office mates who are *not* 
in the same profession might be stimulating.  I'd probably get distracted; 
leave my work and bother others by asking what they were doing.  So you 
wouldn't want me there.  Midtown by itself would be distracting.
