I’ve been remote working for 12 years and I love the explosion of coworking spaces that have opened over the past few years. But so many coworking spaces get the basics wrong… So what follows is a simple (and I’d argue to say obvious) checklist for creating a great coworking space that entrepreneurs like myself enjoy working from.

More than one-third of U.S. libraries offer space for mobile workers and dedicated coworking spaces. Those coworking at a library often have access to large work tables, wireless printing, meeting rooms for collaboration, and access to business and research resources most individuals can’t afford including demographics and other market research and statistics, legal databases and professional journals.

So this is the post I wish I’d read myself back when I decided to work remotely. If you don’t want to read the whole thing, I can even summarize it for you, right here: different people like different kinds of work environments; “working remotely” doesn’t have to mean “working from home”; and if you’re going to work remotely, you should find the work environment that’s the right fit for you.

I’ve seen a number of posts about people’s experiences as participants of Remote Year, but I’m wondering if anyone can share their experience in any other remote coworking program. Terminal 3 and The Remote Experience both seem more attractive to me than Remote Year based on price, flexibility, and accommodations, but I haven’t been able to find any detailed personal accounts. Perhaps that’s just because these other programs are younger.

Rising office rents make co-working spaces an attractive, and practical, alternative. Could they also foster a ‘magic spark’ among entrepreneurs?

It’s clear that co-working is far more than a passing trend, it’s now a huge global industry providing essential services to communities of start-ups, entrepreneurs and freelancers in cities around the world. In fact, these spaces are becoming so popular, some experts believe they could be the predominant way in which we work in the future, taking over from more traditional office environments.

Technology has upended where we work. The line between work and play has been blurred, and the difference between the office and home has all but disappeared. As a result, there’s a new class of white-collar workers (or no collar, to be precise) who roam the earth looking for places to get their jobs done.

If you feel like more people these days work for themselves than ever than you are right.
