I’ve been attending a number of meetings of various organizations. Several have been held at The Code Factory in downtown Ottawa, a collaborative workspace that serves startups and SMEs by providing work areas, meeting rooms and office infrastructure. Its a great idea and, in my mind, the way of the future with the growth of mobile computing and nomadic workers. The office will become a place to meet, share ideas and socialize. While being a nomad is liberating, motivation comes more from being part of a team and that does require relationship building face time.
