The Reno-Tahoe WordCamp that took place in April was very successful and now a caravan of WordPress geeks will be heading down to San Francisco for the weekend of May 30th to attend WordCamp San Francisco.
I personally look forward to attending the conference because I didn’t get to enjoy the speakers as much as I could have while trying to orchestrate our Reno-Tahoe event. There are a few things we’re working on that we look forward to sharing while we’re down there.

We are very excited to announce that coworking in Reno officially has a home. Reno Collective will be moving into the Cathexes building downtown on 250 Bell Street.
The building is shared by the Cathexes Architect group and a bevy of green, renewable start up companies and organizations including the Renewable Energy Accelerator 250, Bombard Renewable Power, and the Sierra Club. There is such a strong synergy between these groups and we believe our presence will only further that synergy and create new opportunities for the community.
We are putting together a new website to allow for anyone interested in becoming a member of Reno Collective to sign up and learn more about the space and what opportunities it will offer so keep checking back!
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?
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:
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.
