    We've had a laptop stolen from our space.  It took less than 15 seconds for the thief to come in and wander away with it.   An iBeacon that would have alerted the owner wouldn't have been very effective in this case - and, as I understand it, the beacon has to be very close to the phone to broadcast

    A short while ago, we learned that Google is instituting a new requirement for Android app developers where they must provide a physical address. This affects all app developers who intend on listing their apps through the Google Play Store if they plan on selling the app (rather than listing it as a free download) or if they plan on including any in-app purchases. Basically, if you plan on making any money through Google Play, you need to update your developer and publisher profile with them such that they have a physical address on file. The thing is that the physical address isn’t…

    Yeah, that's what I had in mind, a kind of satellite location. An experiment to compliment the other spaces and learn from. Given that, the limited hours don't bother me so much. It comes with the territory of a mall space, and I also think this part of Europe is just more accepting of limited servi

    Thanks for the reply, Craig. I had the wrong stereotype about mall pricing, which is good to hear. I have to spend some time there and in the neighborhood just to have a more realistic sense of whether there might be some kind of cool community building within the mall. I maybe posted this premature

    Hi Rachel, These are good questions. I hadn't though through security much because I haven't thought through basic design enough, but I guess security would be constrained by how open the access was. If it's as open as a cafe, I suppose people wouldn't be able to just leave their laptops on the desk

  • How the New Google Play Address Requirement Affects Consumers

    Starting on September 30, Google will require all Android app developers to provide a physical address if they plan on monetizing the app in any way. This includes all paid apps through the Google Play Store, as well as free apps that include any in-app purchases. The latter form of monetization is increasingly popular across all sorts of app categories, from premium social media managers to virtual currency in mobile games. Providing the physical address wouldn’t be that big of a problem, especially if you already provide Google with your address for other services like AdSense, but it…
  • Protect Your Privacy with New Google Developer Address Requirement

    When you have a brick and mortar business like a coffee shop or a furniture store, you want your customers to know your physical address, because you want them to come visit you in person. That only makes sense. When you have an online business and you work from home, you may not want to disclose your mailing address to random strangers on the Internet. However, a recent change from Google could put your privacy at risk. Google is now requiring all Google Play developers who sell paid apps or have apps with in-app purchases to supply them with a physical mailing address. While some developers…

    Do you develop mobile apps for smartphones and tablets? More specifically, do you publish Android apps via the Google Play Store? You’ll want to pay close attention to a story that broke recently about an update to how Google is handling Google Play Store app submissions and app developers. If you publish any app via the Google Play Store–this includes Android for sure and we think it extends to Chrome apps too–that is either a paid app or it’s a free app with in-app purchases, then Google will require you to provide them with a physical address to keep on file.

  • 4 Co-Work Spaces: Where to stay connected on the road

    Working while travelling can be challenging. Coffee shops are fine for checking and sending a couple of emails, but Internet connections can be unreliable and you can’t always secure a spot by a plug-in. Co-working spaces offer a practical alternative with hourly and daily drop-in fees or flexible membership options. Available resources will typically include fast Internet upload and download speeds, private meeting and conference rooms, printing, copying and scanning facilities and mail and switchboard services, not to mention a rich networking environment. Here are four favourites.

  • How your Price Structure Affects Your Coworking Culture

    Post Author: Craig Baute. As space owners and coworking catalyst we work hard to create a culture and community that we view best fits the individuals in the neighborhood  and our current members. We take careful considerations of the design of the space, the amenities, and events that will be held there. But do we think about how the pricing structure affects the culture? Sure we think about price points and do a break-even analysis, but most spaces do not consider how it will affect the culture of the community. After rereading Freakonomics I wanted to put on my investigative economist…

  • A Number One Hit: Coworking for Musicians

    10 Oct 2014 | 9:47 am
    Since it's peak in 1999, the music industry has changed drastically, leaving many professional musicians alone to fend for themselves. Musicians, old and young, are now reliant on digital platforms like YouTube, Bandcamp and Soundcloud, to promote their music. When it comes to raising funds to record an album, or go on tour, many people turn to crowdfunding. Yet as innovative and successful we have seen crowd-sourcing to be, it is also over saturated with projects and people looking to fund their ideas. In order to compete with the millions of artists using online platforms, a supportive…
