Coworking’s catching on in Birmingham

Birmingham Jelly. Todd Sundsted/FlickrThe coworking movement seems to be picking up steam here in metro Birmingham. It’s a fairly loose and casual way to get together and work. This week you’ve got two chances to venture out to Homewood’s Cool Beans Coffee House (recently purchased by the owners of downtown Birmingham’s Java and Jams) to work with others. Thursday morning you can head over and work with Coworking Birmingham starting at 9 a.m.; on Friday, you can head on over there and work all day with “members” of Birmingham Jelly starting at 10. While the first group meets occasionally, the Birmingham Jelly meets weekly. Both groups maintain presence on Facebook, so you can always start to follow them to know what’s next.

Welcome WordCampers!

We’ve been slightly quieter than normal this week because of preparing to host WordPress users from across the Southeastern United States at WordCamp Birmingham. the conference begins at the Martha Moore Sykes Studio at the Virginia Samford Theatre at Caldwell Park. They’ll be at Vulcan Park and The Bottletree on Sunday. Registration will remain open until 9 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday) morning, when the fun starts. We’d like to take a moment to direct you to this list of sponsors and supporters of this inaugural conference. And we’d like to invite you to check out the schedule as well.

What, you say you want to welcome them to town yourselves though you’re not planning to come to the conference? How about coming out to Jim ‘N Nick’s in Five Points tonight starting at 6 p.m. for an impromptu meetup/Tweetup for Terminal fans and WordCampers. Look for logo.
