As promised, yet another entry on cool places for hackers to hang out in Cambridge.  This time, the incomparable “Enormous Room” in Central Square, on Massachusetts Avenue about halfway between Harvard and MIT.  Given the location, it is not surprising that a wide range of folks can be found at this cool and friendly place.  You have to be clever to find it- it is on the second floor, and reached through a door marked only by an etched glass elephant.  The low tables, and upholstered, “bleacher-style” seats make it a very comfortable place to chat with your friends, and later on, becomes home to live and DJ music.  Once again, a place where you can overhear anything from MIT Media Lab conversations to discussions about quantitative finance…

Next stop, San Francisco!
