Coworker. CoWORKING. Despite sounding confusingly similar, the terms drastically differ—with the latter representing a new brand of independently co-operative work environments. Yes, you heard that right. Best defined by Wikipedia, “Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation.” First established in 1999, Coworking spaces have now amounted to over 700 and counting, (in the U.S., alone), with the tech industry of San Francisco truly embracing these progressive co-operative work environs.
