Remote Fridays! June 17, 2011

Have you heard about this thing we call a “flexible workspace”?  If you follow our blog it’s possible that you have!  We rent a pretty small space from the Hearing, Speech and Deafness Center which we call our office, or our home base.  If every single person that works in some capacity for Seattle Works (staff, AmeriCorps, intern, contractor, work-study, bookkeeper, Percival, etc.)  were in that office at once it would be quite crowded.

Enter “flexible workspace” to save the day.  Everyone is equipped with a refurbished laptop and empowered to work from the places that make the most sense for them!  Often that’s in our office, but because we like being out and about in our community we instituted something called Remote Fridays.  Every Friday you can find Seattle Works out at a different coffee shop.  We try to switch up the neighborhoods and are open to going just about anywhere that has free wi-fi and allows us to camp out for 8+ hours at a time.

Today we’re at the Cherry Street Museum which is awesome!  They even had a chalk wall so we could mark our territory:

What’s your favorite coffee shop?  Any suggestions for where we should go next?
