Deskmag.com reports that in the last three years the number of coworking spaces worldwide has more than tripled, growing to more than 3,000. In this podcast, Neal Cresswell and Judy Whitehead of OfficeXpats tell BCB host Lyssa Danehy deHart about some free events and services OfficeXpats will be offering to celebrate Coworking Week, August 4-8.

•  FREE COWORKING ALL WEEK

Stop in and get work done; just sign in when you arrive and get a quick tour from one of our host ambassadors. You don’t need to give us an RSVP, but an RSVP will guarantee you a desk. Then look for desks with a FREE COWORKING sign, set up your laptop and hook up to our Wi-Fi (you’ll get the code when you sign in). NOTE: Bring headphones in case it gets noisy!

On Wednesday, August 6th, a team of tech geeks will help give your cranky slow laptop a new life. They’ll  wipe the contents of your laptop and install an Open Source operating system, Web browser, and even free Open Office software for word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation documents.
