I've shared a few Food Theory videos before, but I really enjoyed this one. It's about how coffee houses helped lead to the Scientific Revolution. It's quite fascinating, and I recommend viewing it.

One major component about coffee houses were that they were great meeting places for intellectuals to come together and discuss ideas, whether it was science, politics, literature, art and more. Today, coffee houses are still a great place to get work done. You're stimulated by your coffee or tea, it's typically a chill atmosphere, they offer free and reliable Wi-Fi, and it beats being alone while working. To me, there is something peaceful about being surrounded by people, but not being inclined the interact with any of them. We are all there doing what we have to do. We are working alone together.
