Coworking is a trend we picked up on here in NYC and followed all the way to Philadelphia, where it appears to be developing a strong base of followers and participants. According to the Coworking Community Blog, coworking is “a movement to create a community of cafe-like collaboration spaces for developers, writers and independents.” Though not strictly defined, a coworking event is generally comprised of a fluid group of freelancers, bedouin workers, and other transient collaborators from a variety of industries (though many or often involved in technology or media) coming together to work on their independent projects while sharing ideas, inspiration, and resources. Communal workspaces and organizations have grown steadily in big cities like New York and San Francisco, Jelly in NYC and CitizenSpace in SF being two notable examples of popular coworking groups.
