I was away this weekend, so I just now caught up on my regular reading of the Boston Globe. An article in Saturday's paper described some people I know at the Betahouse, a co-operative development loft in Central Square, Cambridge.
This co-operative development effort is interesting. The engineers work on their own projects, but also collaborate on bigger projects, including Good2gether. They share information on interesting start-ups and technology strategies. They also attend OpenCoffee in Cambridge where they can interact with other entrepreneurs.
This kind of open sharing and collaboration is great for entrepreneurship. It's one of several examples I see now of entrepreneurs openly collaborating in order to build the community and not just for a short-term benefit. I love it.
