In San Francisco a few months ago 3 people were advertising on 
ba.market.housing for roommates in a large house where they could all 
share a 56K ISDN line. A CoHousing group could use that idea and treat it 
as a shared resource like a wood shop. It's be particularly good for a 
place with a lot of high school students. Monta Vista High School in 
Cupertino, CA and other schools have set up Web servers, so why not a 
CoHousing group?
