From Isolation to Stimulation

Posted in coworking by Erik on March 13, 2010

Dr. Jeff Cornwall recently posted on his blog The Entrepreneurial Mind,

In an age of technology where it is so easy to become isolated, the co-working movement has drawn those who work independently but still seek to be a part of a stimulating community.

Mental stimulation is a non-tangible take away I’ve personally experienced while coworking. Discussions about infrastructure systems, Minnesota web-technology trends and coworking immediately come to mind. At the end of a day of coworking, I feel invigorated by the discussions I’ve had and the open sharing and collaboration that has taken place.

Dr. Cornwall’s article primarily focuses on cost benefits of coworking and a new coworking space, CoLab in Nashville, TN. He points out that Coworking is a good way for boot-strap startups to keep costs low while gaining the “open environment that fosters interaction, collaboration and even shared work projects.”

Hat tip to National Association for the Self Employed (NASE) for referencing the original.
