Coworking in the UK

For those of you interested in the idea of coworking (covered briefly here last week here) there is an interesting Coworking Community Blog which describes coworking as "a movement to create a community of cafe-like collaboration spaces for developers, writers and independents". Increasingly popular in the US, it still hasn't really sprung to life here in the UK though there are some coworking spots including (in London) The Hub, which describes itself as an incubator for social innovation offering "all the tools and trimmings needed to cultivate an idea, launch a project, host a meeting and run a business", and Studio 1 Offices who provide "a workspace for freelancers and small businesses who prefer not to work from home, wanting all the practical and social advantages of a business centre." Have a look too at the Chaosncoffee blog which is trying to get coworking events off the ground.
