Yesterday was my first day at a local coworking space (it's an international coworking space chain – although this definition is far from being exhaustive, so do check their website out for venues near your hometown if you're interested! http://impacthub.net) and I can totally recommend this experience!
Although it's not ideal for very busy days, such as yesterday was to me (but I survived!), in just a few hours I've met 6 new people, with a lot more to go! I've also found it quite difficult to distract myself and I only took breaks when I actually needed to.
Wait, that's not true: I took a couple more breaks to have breakfast together with other hubbers, to chat over coffee and again over snacks... Can't guarantee that all coworking spaces are fit for food lovers, though
Have you ever tried working in a coworking space? It'd be nice to hear about your experience
