This blog has slowed to a crawl this year.
The pandemic has been a brutal blow to the global economy, and no sector has been hit any harder than coworking. A coworking space has only one business, bringing workers together in a face-to-face community. And that’s the one thing that just isn’t safe to do.
In addition, the customers of coworking spaces, freelancers and independent workers, have been pounded by the shutdown. And, worse, these independent workers generally work at home part of the time, so they are positions to WAH 100% if needed. So the customers of coworking spaces are uniquely prepared to forgo the service for extended periods.
Coworking spaces have closed, and many will never reopen.
All this means that my book, “What is Coworking?” (2018)  is pretty thoroughly obsolete.
“What is Coworking?” It’s over, is what it is.
