20mission, A Live/Work Space for Tech Workers | Mission Loc@l

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 11:33 -- rprice

On any given day, 20mission looks and feels kind of like a dormitory — under minor construction, for now. Energetic tenants scurry from unit to unit, shuffling past screwdrivers and sanders on the unfinished hardwood floors. The smell of new wood, paint and primer fills the hallways. There are 40 residents and each gets his or her own standard-size bedroom for $1,400 per month. Residents range between their mid 20s and mid 40s. They share five bathrooms, four showers, a washer and dryer and a massive office space downstairs. Rent pricing is that of a typical studio in San Francisco.

the strength of FamiLab is in the ideas created there. And that's a big reason why they're looking at Orlando as an area to expand to. “Just on an innovation standpoint, it’s a very rich setup that they had there,” Dauphin said. “The hardest part [of starting a company] is having the idea to leverage. That’s the strength of FamiLab: good people with very good ideas.”

'Innovation Hotel' Collision Works Brings Community Focused Development to Detroit

Tue, 11/19/2013 - 07:07 -- rprice

“It is important for people to understand that the stories they hold close, the stories of their lives, are actually very important. These stories remind us who we are, where we come from, and provide valuable lessons, clues, and roadmaps for how we move forward. So much of the city has left in the last 50 years and our stories and history have left with them.

they are looking for nothing more than a diverse set of skills from its members, so that they might come together organically to form the blockbuster start-ups of tomorrow. “It’s an ecosystem,” Mr. Ryans said. “A lot of places focus on creating an environment where it’s like a lake, you’ve got four species of fish. We think we’re the Great Barrier Reef.” The very layout of Neuehouse is meant to suggest that work nowadays, at least for entrepreneurs, is a glorified version of hanging out.

It also includes a subset called the peer economy, which describes peer-to-peer platforms in which people sell things to one another. There's also a subset called the "gift economy," which is stuff like couch-surfing through platforms like Airbnb. Speaking of which, the Airbnb co-founder Joe Gebbia described this movement this way, : "Social media is about sharing online. We've extended that behavior into the offline world.
