What are you thankful for?

November 26, 2008 in Announcements

Times are hard for a lot of people right now but we must remain optimistic for change. If you’re going through troubled times, keep going and you’ll learn a lot from your experiences. Times will get better and instead of dwelling on negativity we should be thankful for whatever and whomever we have in our lives. So I have to ask – what are you thankful for?

Congrats to Independents Hall on their one year anniversary

When we decided to bring coworking to Reno, we started watching a lot of the coworking spaces across the country in order to adapt the model to our area. One of those individuals included Alex Hillman of Independents Hall. Alex and his crew are celebrating Indy Hall’s one year anniversary, which also happens to have just reached maximum capacity. They are all filled up! Congratulations on everything you guys have achieved.

Alex posted the following video that shows how Indy Hall has evolved from day one:

Building an online community

August 11, 2008 in Announcements

While we are looking for a building to house Reno Collective, we have setup a “social network” to build our community online before taking it to the streets.

If you are interested in being a part of the Reno Collective family, check it out at www.renocollective.ning.com. Create a profile and get involved!

This little experiment is powered by Ning. I’m not a fan of the Google ads they plaster on everything but hey, it keeps it free. We’ll eventually move to something different for our online community interaction, either a custom application built in ruby on rails or a community wiki.
