Since I’ve gotten so used to a lengthier daily commute over the last couple years, I just wanted to share some things that I think make driving in Austin a little more pleasant.
The word “coworking” was established in 1999 by Bernard De Koven. He wrote, “When I coined the word coworking, I was describing a phenomenon I called ‘working together as equals.’” In 2005 the first official coworking space was opened in San Francisco by a computer programmer named Brad Neuberg. The office, which didn’t seem to have a name, was inspired by hackerspaces of the mid to late 1990s.
More than anything, having a place like Createscape to go to in the summer allows me to keep a clear focus on work versus play. So to those of you coworking with us in June: come for the cool air-conditioning, stay for the great people!

Coworking offices today are pretty ubiquitous, but in 2005, the year one of the first official coworking offices launched, not so much. The idea of corralling freelance, contract, remote workers and small teams into a single space was inspired by hackerspaces of the early 00s and workspaces-as-a-service offices in the 1990s. The biggest difference between “coworking” and its predecessors is the effort that owners put toward creating a community by organizing business and social events.
