Coworkers of the world! We toast your place of work/worship today.

Deskmag gives us a bit of the origins of coworking, which began with Brad Neuberg in San Francisco organizing a center for wellness and networking. We did some digging in the dusty photo archives and found what that first day of coworking probably looked like.

2005 sure feels like a long time ago.

Here’s to collective spaces, cost-sharing, and creating new kinds of working relationships. As the ancient proverb goes: Communities that work together, build new cool things together. And then also share doughnuts together.
