Coworking Lets Things Happen

Do yourself a favor and watch these two videos ASAP:

Steven Johnson explains, quite succinctly and with historic reference, a lot of the theses we’ve built Indy Hall upon over the last 3+ years and generally why environments like coworking spaces and coworking communities are such powerful engines for true innovation.

The ADD version:

It’s not about any one individual “idea” or moment, or even incentivizing collaboration, but instead about creating opportunities for smaller, half-baked ideas to bump into each other and serendipitously realize that they are each others’ missing pieces.

So STOP trying to make innovation happen, and let it happen.

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.
