What coworking spaces, if any, have you visited? Which do you call home?

Noisebridge, Motive Collective, PLACE for Sustainable Living, The Long Haul. Motive is my home and mission, but I love being in different spaces with different community members

What key features are most important to you in coworking spaces?

Intentional space, organization, inspiration, creativity

How about Jellies: is ad-hoc coworking in your future?

I've never heard about this, but after googling it for a few minutes, it sounds like something I'm trying to do already! Would love to know how to better involve my local community in such events.

What should we be doing with this MeetUp group?

Spreading the idea that "work" doesn't have to be work and we all have something to contribute to larger goals. Individuals can accomplish only so much. It's through collaboration and cooperation that our individual abilities and passions can truly shine.


I'm working to become a collaborator by trade, and have an Engineering background that is somewhat hard to come by. I'd love to learn more about coworking and cooperation. I have a lot to learn and some to teach.
