Coworking

I've been working for Canonical for around four years now, and for the vast majority of that time I've worked out of a room in my house. You need to have a certain style of discipline to work effectively from home and I like to think that I have that.

More recently I've been feeling a little down about work in general. I think it is because I am insulated and tend to get a lot of information from blogs, a number of feeds, twitter, identi.ca, facebook and email lists. A lot of the information that I then get exposed to is often from the vocal minority, and this can be a little draining.

Last Friday I started spending some of my work day at the distiller lab. I have to say it has been great for my general state of mind. Today is my forth day in a row spending some time here and so far, so good.

Sorry to hear that you've been down recently. I hope coworking works out for you.

Us folk in the vocal minority would love to hear more from you. Join us!

I think coworking will help out a lot. We've got a little contingent of Canonical folks coworking from my space in Colorado! Hop on our irc channel anytime if you want to find them. Freenode #coherellc.
