Historical Note – Texas Coworking once leased space from boundlessnetwork.com and Henrik Johanssen and we can can’t recommend these folks enough.  They are *not* a coworking space, they sell bling to trade shows, you know, those t shirts and pens and stuff you get at trade shows.

Welcome to Texas Coworking

Coworking in the Heart of Austin

The Unoffice Office

built in cubicles

just a fraction of the space

What is Coworking?

Coworking is the growing movement between a full time office gig and a self employment career.   It’s a place

- to work in an office like environment without the boss.

- to work alongside others who share similar careers or talents.

- to focus on what needs to be done in a quieter office enviroment

This is what Texas Coworking used to offer and look like.  It’s no longer a physical coworking space.

Features at one time included:

  • Offices available for confidential meetings and phone calls.
  • Plenty of  room to spread out, focus and get things done.
  • Large conference room
  • high-speed and secured wifi
  • Wired ethernet wall ports
  • Server room with servers for all your IT and web and application development needs,
  • Rooftop terrace – a place to relax – overlooking 6th Street and the Austin Convention Center.
  • Copy, fax, mail and other services

Here are some pictures of the place, a video tour featuring Grace Sharington produced by a noted local film maker, Michelle Millette, is posted here below.

 Call Paul Terry Walhus at 512-699-4000  for more details.

Texas Coworking celebrates Boagworld 200 Friday 4 am!

Texas Coworking Video Conference Event: Boagworld 200.

At 200 E 6th Street 301 (third floor), Austin, TX, 78701. http://texascoworking.com

Friday Feb 12, 2010 starting at 4 am till 4 pm with Happy Hour after at BD Rileys pub downstairs from Texas Coworking.

Friday, Feb 12 is the 200th episode of a web show called “Boagworld”!

You can watch it at Texas Coworking.  But you’ll have to get up early.  Or come later.

Don’t worry about parking, because 6th Street has tons of free parking at 4 am.

This will be a live video podcast originating from England starting at 4 am CST and ending at 4 pm CST followed by a beer bash at BD Rileys Pub downstairs from 5 pm till whenever.

To celebrate this momentous achievement we are going to do a 12 hour live podcast marathon with big screen tvs set up at Texas Coworking.

The show starts at 4 AM on Friday the 12th February and finishes at 4 PM that evening (times are CST, Central Standard Time).

Paul Boag has “too many guests to mention, but lets just say you will not be disappointed!” says Paul.  We hope Colin Firth will be among them.  And we’ve requested a skype video feed so Austin, Texas can take part.

Please email us if you plan to attend, it would be helpful to have RSVPs to know if anyone will get up at this ridiculous hour.

Email t@texascoworking.com

Since the event is so long, we don’t mind if you come late and/or leave early.  Or you can come early and leave late, as Mack Brown would say.

We haven’t heard back yet, but we contacted Paul Boag and Marcus Lillington about doing a return skype feed so Austin Texas can butt in to the event and we’re waiting for their reply.

NPR: Coworking Offers Community To Solo Workers

More coverage on Coworking!  Kaomi Goetz from NPR reports:

Wi-Fi, laptops and cell phones make it possible to work from just about anywhere these days. They’ve helped people leave the office and work from the comfort of their living rooms or corner coffee shops.

But now, an increasing number of Americans are looking for something in between.

Community

Kevin Prentiss started his Internet-based business from his apartment in New York City. For two years, he says he worked 14-hour days in solitude — ironic, considering he runs a social networking site.

“I don’t know that I was talking to myself,” he says. “I think that probably I was talking to myself.”

Then one day he heard about New Work City. It’s a rented office space in Manhattan where workers like Prentiss can drop in, hook up their laptops and work away with other people similarly mobile, while making face-to-face connections.
