Coworking

Stop on a Dime, Pivot, Take a Deep Breath, Keep Moving

Hilary Mason will be giving a talk at Urban ReThink tomorrow.

This is definitely a defining moment in the history of Orlando's creative / tech / entrepreneurial scene. This is something I've been working on personally, along with hundreds of others, for what feels like forever now. That, or 7 years, whichever comes first.

Great Urban ReThink write-up by Seth Kubersky

Thu, 03/03/2011 - 09:21 -- rprice

I just got a phone call from my brother Stefan who asked me if I had read the Orlando Weekly - it turns out I was mentioned in a Live Active Cultures column by their passionate arts contributor Seth Kubersky. Random trivia: I actually ended up supplying one of the  bottle s of wine referenced in the article. Just trying to do my part!

I also want to correct one thing: I believe Seth meant to say "opened" at the end of this line:

Urban ReThink (with photo) in Orlando Business Journal

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 08:25 -- rprice

A few weeks ago, I was visiting Cocoa Village, working out of the Ossorio coffee shop with Mike, when I got a phone call from Orlando Business Journal reporter Anjali Fluker. She asked me several questions about Coworking and what I do working out of home, coffee shops and other spaces. I told her some of the benefits of coworking, and a bit about the Urban ReThink project.

My Urban ReThink Story

There were hazy thoughts about having a cafe, putting in a loft, and creating a versatile space. She found me because of my numerous blogs posts about Coworking, and my involvement in the local community.

Correction: I'm so happy to be here

Referring to my last post about the Orlando Sentinel's first article about Urban ReThink since last March when the bookstore closed: I am really happy about it.

In wanting to post about it, I gave the piece favorable mention in several places. On this blog, however, I tended to focus on certain parts of the article, and it must have seemed pretty ungrateful and irresponsible.

Urban ReThink in the Orlando Sentinel Today

Fri, 01/07/2011 - 06:01 -- rprice

Update: There is more to this post when you're done reading it. I want to make sure and thank Sandra for her article.

Today the Orlando Sentinel wrote a short, one-dimensional piece about our as-of-yet-unopened space at Urban ReThink in downtown Orlando. I really wish we could have a website today - one exists, but with no styling. Ugh.
