Steve- Thanks for the mention.

Laura- We'd be happy to provide more detail to any folks wanting to start a coworking community in a small town or suburb. Feel free to contact me via twitter @veelhoeden or via our website at http://veelhoeden.posterous.com


Laura: Sorry to be so slow responding. One reason is I'm in Europe to attend a coworking conference:).

Pella Iowa has a coworking space as do a lot of suburbs. The coworking wiki - http://wiki.coworking.info - has a pretty good list of spaces, including many outside of the city


Hi, looking at Myth #5, you say that coworking is not only for big cities. Can you give examples of spaces that are thriving out of the city? We are looking at a suburban area and wondering about the possibilities there and would love to hear how it is going for others.

Yes, coworking spaces provide a social environment and they are good places for those tired of working alone at home or in coffee shops. But the more important benefits are the business collaboration, networking and partnering opportunities provided by being part of a coworking community.

The said kind is really quite amazing in its kind, than others.
