Next week I move to Victoria. I've been in BC for seven years now, and for all this time I've been not only working from home, but also living on the semi-rural Southern Gulf Islands. Moving to Victoria is a big change for me. Walking or biking to stores is a real option. Hanging out in a cafe, also an option. After reading Ross' post about coworking, I started to wonder if this could be something we could do in Victoria. I know Flock has an office in Bastion Square, maybe they have space? Maybe another tech company?
I'm not looking for a permanent office, but a place to come once and a while to work with other folks. After doing everything from house for so long, I think this could be a nice change.
I like the idea of coworking. Why not? Who knows what cool and interesting things could come out of having smart people together?
I've started to take a look at the coworking blog and wiki … nothing coming up in Victoria … maybe I can change that, even if it means people hanging out in my apartment now and then (especially if they bring baked goods!).
