Is coworking a passing fad or is it a concept that shows the future of office space utilization?
wstark 2 years ago
Coworking, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the concept of setting up offices with an emphasis on open space being shared among employees. No cubicals, not focused offices with doors, just shared desks in a space with an open floorplan, whether it be within a single company or a shared space with perhaps a dozen entrepreneurs sitting at their computers in an environment more like a university library than a Dilbert cartoon. It has been mostly a west coast thing, but I am waiting to see whether it will spread and become a popular business model. Is it likely to catch on?
