This old saying is truer today than ever before; but for different reasons. A connected world means ideas are shared and improved upon within minutes rather than months. Choosing to spend part of your week working from a co-working space allows you to make new connections with a depth beyond those possible via Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Working from berrins over the last 11 months has connected me with some amazing people who have shared their knowledge and broadened my horizons. Deskmag did a survey and found 1800 co-working spaces have opened around the globe since 2005 when Brad Neuberg opened the first in San Francisco.
