The Fascination of Coworking - New Study Released
The fact that most coworking spaces are somewhat "cool" is probably the reason that most people become exposed to them.

The Coworking Community Expands with NewWorker Magazine
Coworking is all about community. Individual coworkers tend not to be focused on the money or the fame (but it doesn’t hurt if that happens, too) but are focused on the improvement of the workforce and the wellbeing of community members.

The Coworking Forecast 2014
What if you could enjoy more leisure time while earning a higher wage? That’s the boon awaiting the one in ten people who start coworking this year. Everyone else will have to work more. But three fourths of coworking respondents reported a significant bonus at year’s end.
