c’mon philly!

i wrote about philly pride almost a month ago, and apparently I’m not the only one experiencing it.

this recent wired article talks about the power and success behind barcamp and the collaborative format.

They talk about BarCampNYC2, held just a couple of weekends ago. Making a cameo in the article were philly locals Jason Coleman and his fianceé Kim Wallmeier, young entrepreneurs from my hood and masterminds behind WineLog.net!

As you might imagine, I have every intention of contacting them about their experiences at BarcampNYC2, and to talk about a full scale BarCampPhilly.

This quote stood out:

“Coleman and Wallmeier rarely get to mingle with so many tech entrepreneurs in their hometown of Philadelphia, so BarCamp was a chance to bounce ideas around with a like-minded audience.”

THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE! Collaboration is the key! The Philadelphia indie community shall unite! WHO’S WITH ME!?!

Hey, thanks for reading!

Alex Hillman I am always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust and business. I founded Indy Hall in 2006, making us one of oldest fully independent coworking communities in the world. This site is packed with the lessons and examples I’ve learned along the way. You can find me on Twitter, too! 🐦 Say hi.
