Orlando Sentinel Grokking the Freelance Community?

In today's paper (yes, they still print news on to dead trees) there is an article about the not-yet-open Urban ReThink in Downtown Orlando's Thornton Park neighborhood. The article mainly focuses on the Coworking part of it - trust me, there is a lot more to it than Coworking. Still, coverage in the mainstream media is nice, and I have had several people messaging me because they saw my name in the paper. Cool stuff.

A new chapter opens for Urban Think! as a workplace

Below that I saw a photo of (twentysomething) kids sitting at laptops... It was an article about free wi-fi in Orlando. Did the Sentinel's recommendation engine get lucky, or was it some savvy web editor who knew that people reading about Cow-orking would also be looking for cool places to work and get wi-fi? I am betting on the latter.

Where to find free Wi-Fi spots in Central Florida

Here on Florida Creatives, we have a small directory of Orlando Wi-Fi Spots as well - in our wiki.

Any chance the conference

Any chance the conference rooms might be rented out on an hourly basis to non-tenants?

Short answer: Yes. We are

Short answer: Yes. We are preparing a rate sheet and a rental contract.

If you have a need in the next couple of weeks, we're available, but there is no Internet just yet. There is hardly any furniture - if you can't tell from the photo above.
