Coworking the best of both worlds of work

A place for lots of independent professionals to get together and work. One of the first responses a friend who left 8 years of corporate work for a freelancing career said "I miss my coffee machine so much!" So for all those folks comes the concept of coworking. The PSFK blog talks about it:

According to the Coworking Community Blog, coworking is “a movement to create a community of cafe-like collaboration spaces for developers, writers and independents.” Though not strictly defined, a coworking event is generally comprised of a fluid group of freelancers, bedouin workers, and other transient collaborators from a variety of industries (though many or often involved in technology or media) coming together to work on their independent projects while sharing ideas, inspiration, and resources.

I have a feeling a lot more Indian professionals are looking at freelancing opportunities, so if anyone has bright ideas for a event in Hyderabad let me know :-)
