International Coworking Day 2022
Today is a day to celebrate!
International Coworking Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate the milestones of an industry that has grown over a short period and has changed how we work.
Curious minds are enquiring about the choice of this date.
International Coworking Day is celebrated on August 9 every year since software programmer Brad Neuberg wrote about his coworking space in the Spiral Muse for the first time in 2005 in his blog Coding in Paradise.
Coworking was for him “free spirits to come together in community” and work. “Sitting at tables or relaxing on couches as we do our work” was how Neuberg simply put it.
He invited different developers to collaborate two days a week at the San Francisco feminist space Spiral Muse, and it was a rapid success!
He created the term “coworking” which has since spread throughout the globe. His enthusiasm and conviction for his projects, encouraged others to adopt the term and the concept. This is how coworking gained popularity.
