Why A Co-Working Space?

Posted in interview, video by Erik on February 5, 2010

Brad Neuberg original founder of San Francisco’s first co-working community and Chris Messina and Tara Hunt co-founders of Citizen Space discuss some of the benefits of co-working along with the origins of the idea. Chris points out an interesting benefit of the co-working experience as, “accelerating serendipity.” When you bring interesting people together, interesting things will happen. But, as Brad points out, this is less likely to happen in an environment lacking a shared context like a coffee shop. The video is about 1/2 way down the page. Take the 6 1/2 minutes to watch, it’s worth it. After watching, check out the wealth of information about co-working available on the Coworking Community Blog.
