The future of the library

The next library is a place, still. A place where people come together to do co-working and coordinate and invent projects worth working on together. Aided by a librarian who understands the Mesh, a librarian who can bring domain knowledge and people knowledge and access to information to bear. The next library is a house […]

Betahaus

I haven’t seen all the coworking spaces in the world, far from it and it’s certainly not a competition. Still, as I’ve said many times, I consider Betahaus the top coworking space around. This should give you some hints as to why.

Les bibliothèques et le coworking

L’an dernier durant notre temps en europe, nous avons visité les superbes bibliothèques d’Amsterdam et Copenhague. En voyant les multiples aires de travail de différent types et la quantité de gens travaillant et collaborant partout —et pas toujours en silence— je me disais qu’il y avait un lien à faire avec le coworking, j’imaginais entre […]

Berlin, Teil I

Yikes! Already one week in Berlin and I haven’t written anything here! I’ve Flickred though and Twittered. I’m not going to write a “real” post, just a series of paragraphs noting things, don’t really feel like weaving the whole thing into a complete text that makes sense ;) First flight was great, probably the most […]

Bureau communautaire??

Station C est encore une fois dans La Presse, cette fois avec un article intitulé Autonome mais pas seul, très bon article quoique les correcteurs (pas la journaliste) ont jugé bon de parler de “bureau communautaire”. Je trip pas.

Some More Station C Changes

So for various reasons, more particularly the heavier than expected load to manage the place and the lower than expected use of Flex points, we’ve decided to make some more changes to our membership type lineup. You can see more details on the Station C blogue. It’s in french though so the gist of it […]

And… We’re Open

That’s right, after months of preparation and years (!!) of talking about it, Montréal’s first coworking space is open. I’m writing this from my desk at Station C, looking out to what I think is a beautifully prepared space with 16 workspaces (10 are ready, other 6 next weekend), a kitchen, a lounge and 2 […]

Station C in The Gazette

Station C is in the Gazette today, page B3 with a picture and everything. I think I have to review how I open up and/or present things better though, not quite how I wanted to put it Seems I’m an ass and it’s fine. (Station C online in The Gazette)

Station C

I’ve been speaking about coworking for a loooong while. We are finally very close. We’ve found a great space, agreed on a lease, figured out the finances, etc. Next stage, confirming members. Every freelancer I’ve spoken to is interested, to be blunt we now have to see if “interest” translates in dollars. We are holding […]

A Coworking Update

Ok, so, it’s been months, probably since July that I haven’t given a proper Coworking update. A small disclaimer before I do, the following events and explanations could seem like excuses, they are not. I’m aware that lack of time and my general prudence in setting projects up are to blame for the slow advance, […]

Independants Hall Front Page in Philly

My friend Alex Hillman just signed a lease a week ago and opened a coworking space in Philly, Independants Hall. They’re already getting some good coverage with the front page of the business section in the Philadelphia Enquirer. Instead, think of co-working as an entrepreneurial version of parallel play, with owners of their own small […]
