Brilliant ideas are tough to get off the ground.

First, you have to have some sort of brilliant idea.

Then, you need a place to work on it.

While you figure out that first part, we’ll help with the second.

Here you go: Deskpass, a new website and app that lets you have your all-access monthly way with over 25 Chicago coworking spaces, is now online and available for iPhone.

How’s that first part coming?

If Uber’s founders had used this when they were starting out, they would have pitched their idea as Deskpass for cars. There. Happy? That was a different way to say “It’s like Uber for...”

The site’s got a lot of places on it. Mostly downtown. A few in the burbs. You search what’s available and book something, and you can visit each one up to five times per month.

The upshot: one day, you’ll work on Michigan Avenue. The next day, you’ll take a meeting at some artsy spot in River North. The next, you’re laptopping away in a South Loop loft with its own climbing wall.

You don’t have to climb it, but you must consider its metaphorical implications.
