I’m disappointed I won’t be able to join tomorrow’s Cambridge incarnation of Jelly! It’s “casual coworking,” where people bring laptops somewhere and do their individual work in the company of others. I heard about it in a Tweet from Bryan Person, who is spreading the word. I’ve got grandson babysitting duty on Mondays, so I won’t be able to go. Otherwise I’d be on it in a second.
What I love about the introductory video above is how it showcases the diversity and energy of people working on the Internet. The California session is a random collective portrait, with screens showing everything from scary code to funny body parts for magnetic animals. Maybe I should bring my grandson, who will be two in February… In any event, this is the world he will enter, and his Grampa is eager to see what he’ll do!
