Alex Hillman Hey there, it’s Alex from Indy Hall, one of the first & longest-running coworking spaces in the world (est. 2006!).

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that’s because today - Friday, August 9th - is the 4th annual International Coworking Day!

What’s that? You’ve never heard of Brad Neuberg, Chris Messina, or Tara Hunt? If you have, you already know why this day exists. But even if you haven’t heard of these early figures in coworking history, you are in for a treat in the pages to come.

This year, with the help of some friends, I’ve put together a little four-part care package to contribute to the celebration. Each page includes stories and history that might help you remember (or understand) how coworking become an “overnight” worldwide phenominon in just 8 years. Just click the blue buttons below to navigate between each of the parts.


p.s. If you want to tweet about your International Coworking Day experience, don’t forget to share your favorite stories and links using the hashtag #coworkingday.

I want to see the word “coworking” trending worldwide!
