There seem to be lots of people interested in renting in cohousing and in low income cohousing. The difficulty seems to be in getting them all together in one place. It's the same with building cohousing in general, how to get enough households with enough money together in one place. For some reason I'm thinking of FourSquare in relation to this. FourSquare is this odd social network. When you are in a restaurant or lecture or movie or whatever, you check in and see how else is there who is also on FourSquare. I guess you say hi or something. We went to the theater in DC at Christmas time. My daughter checked in and said, No one's here. The theater was full but no matter. No one was there. You also get badges and things for going to places many times and checking in. Very strange but it might have some relevance to finding people in a big building who are interested in cohousing and potlucks. A coho check-in. Maybe Coho US could look into setting something like this up for people who want to connect. Foursquare is an ad supported site but a coho site could be a subscription service.
