The NYC Coworking Field Trip | I’m Outta Here!

On Wednesday, May 27, I’m piloting a Coworking Field Trip to coworking spaces in Manhattan and Brooklyn.  The plan is to highlight the diversity in coworking spaces in a city or metropolitan area.  This diversity—in design of the space, in the activities (other than work) that take place there, in the people that work there—is

What is the #1 Question People Have About Coworking? | I’m Outta Here!

The #1 question is still, “What is coworking?” if my day to day conversation about our book is any indication.  Most people on the street have never heard of coworking, so that question isn’t a surprise. I’m interested in what people who have heard of coworking want to know about, so I asked (via Twitter,

I’m *Not* Outta Here: When Offices Adapt | I’m Outta Here!

I was reading portions of Richard Florida’s “The Rise of the Creative Class” yesterday, and it provided some great cultural and sociological perspective that overlaps in many ways with what we’re exploring here. What I found interesting was his perspective on the workplace: Florida, too, acknowledges that a new generation of workers will be demanding

We’re not big fans of Lulu right now. For some reason, the book keeps getting pulled offline due to printing issues, despite the fact that every copy we’ve ordered has come through just fine. In any case, our eBook version is still up for sale here! If you want to buy a paperback copy of

Tony Bacigalupo | I’m Outta Here!

It’s been fascinating to watch the coworking concept evolve over time. When I first learned about coworking, there were only a handful of coworking spaces in existence, and few of those had been open for very long. Now, as coworking approaches its fourth year, we have dozens of spaces in dozens of cities- and many

Happy Third Birthday, Jelly! | I’m Outta Here!

Three years ago today, Amit Gupta put up a post on the House 2.0 blog Introducing Jelly – a semi-weekly work-together – and began what would become a global movement. Today, Jelly is in over 30 cities worldwide, has spun off Jelly Talks, and is growing every day. Thursday I met the guys from Jelly Sydney,

2009 March | I’m Outta Here!

With roughly 600,000 people losing their jobs each month, it is getting difficult to imagine what all those people are going to do.  File for unemployment? Search Craig’s list for gigs? Refresh that database of contacts? Massage your LinkedIn profile? Probably all of these at some point.  But increasingly, as Intuit’s “The Future of Small Business”
