Collaboration Needed by Workers Too

On my way in to the office today I heard an interesting story on NPR.  Apparently services have popped up in New York wherein small business owners, freelancers and other self-employed types can work together in the same space.  While one tennant (right word?) admits it cuts into his productivity a bit, the value of (1) interacting with others, and (2) network with other entrepreneurs more than outweighs the downside.

Here’s the link to the story, which you can read or listen to.

In this area we have a similar concept over at the Marina Technology Cluster.  While it was set up as a business incubator to vitalize a community in dissaray after a military base closing, radio ads definitely emphasize the value of the collaborative environment.
