Awesome new Coworking Spaces + Upcoming Events to Notice


Coworking Spaces

Berkeley Coworking, Berkeley, CA

Berkeley finally has it's own Coworking space! Put together by the ever-awesome Christopher Allen, it is conveniently located at 2930 Shattuck Suite 305 (cross-street Ashby and near Asby BART) in Berkeley.

Grande Opening event here: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/225865/ (this Friday...)

cooperBricolage, Manhattan, NY

Talked about here on the Coworking blog, Sanford Dickert, a professor at Cooper Union (amongst many other things), has busted his tail to find an affordable, workable solution to solving a daily hangout for indies in Manhattan. Enter Cafe cooperBricolage! The solution? Use a restaurant that isn't open during the day! It seems to be humming along with killer bandwidth and plenty of amenities. I'm looking forward to hanging out when we are back in NYC. Finding reliable, free wifi without the pressure of buying endless coffee wasn't easy.

Hat tip to Nate Westheimer for the name Cafe Bricolage.

...

There are actually several on the brink of opening, but I won't mention them quite yet...

Events

BarCampBlock, Palo Alto, CA - August 18-19th

Marking the 3rd annual BarCamp (and second year anniversary), this year's BarCamp anniversary will take place full circle back in the same place it started: SocialText's offices... and spilling out into the streets! Yep. We will be working with SocialText to get this puppy off the ground with the goal of having a multi-office party starting SocialText's offices... and maybe looping in nearby neighbors like Facebook, iMeem, IDEO, Edgeio and so on.

SocialNetworkDevCamp, Richmond, CA - September 8-9

SocialNetworkDevCamp will focus on API and Widget development from Facebook, Twitter, Pownce, Linked In and others. The camp will also start the process of identifying open APIs and data structures which would facilitate the creation of open standards for social networking.

Much like the uber popular & successful, iPhoneDevCamp, the SNDC is focused on development...actually making stuff!
