Is there any way for EAs who are looking for housemates to find each other?

Living with other EAs is a really powerful way to strengthen the community, and finding like-minded housemates can also have a financial impact for many of us.

If there's nothing already out there then I'm going to make something.

Yes, there's SkillShare's 'lodging' category. Great idea, I'll make a forum post to alert people to this opportunity.

Yes, the way to meet potential housemates that would be likeliest to succeed would be to ask to be put in contact with someone! Sometimes the human solution is the best one!

Edit: oh, you want to make something? Well, I agree that EAs living together can be good but I don't think this is really a software problem. Given that skillshare.im, which has a wider potential usership than this, didn't get consistent usr, I would bet against this getting used!
