Our sole Newsstand post on Friday alluded (and eluded) to some news about the site being made yesterday morning. Well, that news is intertwined with this bit:
A short time ago, a lease was to have been signed for 2308 2nd Avenue North. This was the first step in opening a coworking space in Birmingham, AL. The Terminal is set to be an anchor tenant in the space, to be called Shift Coworking, once it opens later this spring. The space will be managed by Shift 101, a consulting firm with folks based here in the city.
It is hoping to be open as early as mid-April. The Terminal’s talked about some of the coworking groups that have formed in Birmingham in recent months and this appears to be the next logical step in the local movement. We’re looking foward to the opportunities that a physical office provides, including the chance to start our long planned speakers series (among other things). That’s why we’ve asked the question that we did today over on Magic City Question.
In short, it allows us to one thing that will undoubtedly be necessary as social media moves forward – provide a physical home for where the conversations can take place off-line. I explain over on My Birmingham.
