Tues 11.27.12 – Today I became a member at the new downtown Long Beach co-working and community arts space, WE Labs. I have been looking for a good coworking space that is not in a soulless Orange County concrete tilt-up industrial office space and when I was in the UK in October, Kelly Sims started tweeting about WE Labs opening up in Long Beach.
Kelly has been looking for a good coworking spot in the South Bay for over a year and while Santa Monica, the Wilshire district of LA, Santa Ana and Irvine have active coworking locations there has been no good co-working spaces/communities in the North OC / Long Beach / South Bay area, and if you know anything about the LA area due to traffic driving the distance north or south is enough to discourage many a freelancer.
I am now in the final sprint to finish my mobile apps and really need a place that I can go to away from home to focus, work, and participate in community when I want to. I am glad to join WE Labs today.
