Coworking Anywhere - while there are awesome coworking spaces in downtown Orlando, sometimes you want to do your coworking near public transit and awesome places to get coffee, eat, hang out, see some art, go shopping and just get outside to enjoy the spring time. Did you know that there is a global community of people dedicated to the values of Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability in their workplaces? It's called Coworking, and people seem to think it's swell.

If you have the freedom to choose where and how you work or want to support the needs of people who do, you may want to consider joining us in the park on March 17th.

Central Florida Coders, Creatives & Entrepreneurs Pow-wow

The Plaza


Voxeo Headquarters
189 S. Orange Avenue 10th Floor
Orlando, FL 32801
Apr 27 2011 7:00p

What is it? Central Florida has several thriving, yet disjointed communities. There are groups of software developers, filmmakers, designers, entrepreneurs and an array of other creative individuals. We're inviting the leaders and members of these communities to join us for a brainstorming meetup on how to build an even stronger, more vibrant community of DOERS. This is a FREE EVENT and open to any and all who would like to participate in building a better community. Why? We have all of the pieces and parts of a strong and vibrant tech & creative community, but somehow we're not quite living up to our full potential.

Awesome Local Interviews by The Daily City

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Since I have been thinking about recording some more episodes of the Florida Creatives Podcast, I was wondering if anyone else has been doing good local downloadable content. We have Radio Rickshaw and Front Porch Radio producing stuff, as well as CMF Public Media and the local WMFE and WUCF stations. Several years ago, Mark Baratelli of the popular Daily City blog produced a show called the Orlando Arts Podcast, but now he will just periodically post mp3 files and players on his site. This can make the content hard to find, so I have created a list.

Who are you?

Since we have Facebook logins on this site, that means the army of half a billion is collecting anonymous statistics about the folks who use this site. I think it's not a bad representation of the kinds of people that we see in real-life meetups as well.

About two thirds male, and more than a third of all our members are 25-34.

But you guys aren't defined by statistics. Who are you... really? Let everyone know. Leave a comment, make yourself known.

Into Coworking? Make stuff? Are you a writer? Looking for a space to hold events? Hoping to have a decent place to work, collaborate, and meet downtown? You should fill out this survey. urbanrethink

In March of 2010, after eight years as a community bookstore in downtown Orlando and Thornton Park, the Urban Think! Bookstore closed its doors, leaving as its legacy the Urban Think! Foundation. The Foundation believes that when creativity flourishes, the community benefits, and through its mission to enrich Orlando's cultural landscape the Foundation is working to re-think the bookstore space as a creative center serving the Orlando community. Please join us in helping shape the future of the former bookstore by filling out this short survey to assess how this new space might serve you.
