Co-Working War - An open letter to the co-working community

Co-Working IS NOT a startup. Hell, Co-Working IS TECHNICALLY NOT even a business. Co-Working is a movement, an ideology, a culture sprouted by the entrepreneurial spirit its founders and adopters (we?) all deeply share.

 

Co-working is, or should be, a breeding ground of community initiatives....

Wilmington Coworking Space offers atmosphere of inspiration

Wilmington Coworking Space offers atmosphere of inspiration | All About Coworking | Scoop.it

It's a place to take a seat and get things done, to bounce ideas off one another, and occasionally laugh together and get the brain ready for inspiration.

 

This is the coIN loft, at 300 W. 9th St. in Wilmington, a "co-working" shared workspace for entrepreneurs at the very beginning of their business process.

 

For $50, a member can visit five times in a month. If they want unlimited visits and the use of a desk, with Wi-Fi, it's $200 -- far less than renting office space...

What You're Really Paying For With Co-Working Spots

What You're Really Paying For With Co-Working Spots | All About Coworking | Scoop.it

While there certainly is value in having another option for a place to do your work, the real value is in the interaction. Since there are different types of interaction, it opens up the doors to creating really cool outcomes for mobile business people.


Networking for example. There is so much networking to be done while co-working, it’s sick! You can establish new clients, come together on an idea that could help more than 1 person, and even build solid business to business relationships. There’s so much value in that, and the inexpensive monthly fee feels like the least I can do to have access to great networking opportunities.


Stimulating breaks! When we work from home, or even Starbucks, we (us mobile workers) have a great tendency to plug away without a break, until it’s time to go. With co-working, many conversations get started, people relax a bit, and get to renew their energy.


We get into deep conversations about creating things, about web technologies, and anything else under the sun and it’s a perfect recipe for breaking up the work increments, and refreshing your brain at the same time. Here’s a picture of Matt, myself and another local entrepreneur discussing co-working and web technologies.

Five big myths about coworking ::: Deskmag - The Coworking Magazine

Five big myths about coworking ::: Deskmag - The Coworking Magazine | All About Coworking | Scoop.it

As a concept, coworking emerged in the late 1990s among the tech crowd. In the wake of dot-com bust, the idea sputtered and lost its footing. Then, around 2005, it was revived by software programmer Brad Neuberg, who popularized the basic model of coworking as we know it today where workers have the community of an office and the freedom and independence of a freelancer.

 

But over the last couple of years, coworking has evolved and matured.

 

Here we tackle and debunk five myths about coworking to show how much it has changed and is redefining how we work
