Experiences in remote coworking programs other than Remote Year? Terminal 3, The Remote Experience?

I’ve seen a number of posts about people’s experiences as participants of Remote Year, but I’m wondering if anyone can share their experience in any other remote coworking program. Terminal 3 and The Remote Experience both seem more attractive to me than Remote Year based on price, flexibility, and accommodations, but I haven’t been able to find any detailed personal accounts. Perhaps that’s just because these other programs are younger.

The Shallow Culture Of Co-Working Spaces

The optimism of the co-working open office is false. Stripping work to its bare essence strips away some of the humanity of coming into an office and speaking to people you’ve known for at least a couple of months.
