It is true that I have a boring old office job (though judging from last week my job isn’t that boring), however, I also have lots of other projects stewing. I really should bit the bullet and cancel my cable so I can better focus my creative energies after work, but that is a different post entirely.
The internet has enabled a whole new category of professionals working out of their homes to spring up, and Philadelphia has its fair share of these folks. Sometimes it is tough to get stuff done at home. You have no one to bounce ideas off of, and you are surrounded by lots of cool stuff (I mean, you are surrounded by all your stuff, so I should hope you think it is cool). That’s where the idea of coworking comes in.
Coworking is where you kind of buy into a space with some other folks and use it as a communal office. Such an effort is under way here in Philly and it is cleverly called Independents Hall. Three cheers for Independents Hall! I might even sign up for some space, depending on how much it costs and such.
