7th Annual International Coworking Day
Today, Aug 9, is a day to celebrate the future of work, the diverse range of spaces where freelancers and telecommuters can work independently but not alone, access a network willing to help, and celebrate the successes of one another. The number of spaces has grown to 1,779 worldwide, nearly doubled from this time last year. According to Deskmag’s Global Coworking Survey, that number is expecting to rise to 2150 by the end of 2012. Ontario had just eight spaces that self-identified as coworking at the beginning of 2011 and now has 20 (most of them in Toronto, but not all) with another 8 planning to open.
A celebration of the future, indeed!
Happy Coworking Day!
