Shareable: After 7 Years, Coworking Movement Still Growing Rapidly

Yesterday, the global coworking movement celebrated it’s seventh official birthday. Less than a decade after coworking pioneer Brad Neuberg first coined the term, the concept has been duplicated, re-imagined, and expanded by creative innovators all over the world.

What started as an eight-desk shared workspace for developers called Spiral Muse has grown into 1,779 spaces in dozens of countries, with new communities being launched every day. It wasn’t necessarily Neuberg’s model of coworking that spread around the world. Rather, in the true spirit of openness and collaboration–which are foundational principals of the movement–it was the opensource concept of working independently, yet together, that sparked a global revolt against business as usual.
