In early 2008 I got an email from a college senior who was working on a cafe/coworking project. Like many emails I’ve gotten over the years like this, I offered an open door to talk about the concept and what we were learning at Indy Hall.
3 years later, I stumbled across HOLSTEE, and in particular, the Holstee Manifesto. I immediately bought a copy to frame and hang at Indy Hall. Then, on Twitter, I got a message from Dave – the same guy who’d emailed me about his college senior thesis on cafe coworking. He told me he’d gone on to create Holstee.
This poster remains one of my favorites and always bring me a smile when it shows up around the internet. And today I found the video above – a beautiful telling of the manifesto through the act of bicycling around a city.
Enjoy. I did.
