At my last job, we sat around conference room tables did our jobs, and chatted a bit throughout the day. We weren’t always working on the same things, or the same projects, or even in the same area of the business. We were coworkers though and we got our jobs done and had some good conversations as we went along.
How do you duplicate that when you work from home or are a freelancer? It becomes difficult. There are companies out there built around this concept of “coworking” for freelancers/work-from-home types. I’m not interested in starting a company just yet to do that, but I thought it would be cool to get some local people together and do some coworking.
The idea is this — we all have our own projects and our own stuff to do, so let’s get our own stuff done, have some interaction with one another, and have some coffee. If you’re interested, David Murray (@DaveMurr) and I will be at the Biggby on Novi road at Grand River in Novi, MI on June 2nd to kick this off.
And, as with all things twitter related, we need a hashtag. Let’s call it: #SEMIcowork
See you there!
