I posted this to Channel 9 today. Video below.

One of the issues that new startups often face is the where to work question. Do we build in the garage/basement, or do we go after some office space? One new alternative that's catching momentum nationwide is coworking. Coworking allows community members to share the costs of an office space that offers meeting rooms, connectivity, printers, and other amenities.

 
I talked to Chris Shultz, the founder of Launch Pad in New Orleans, about the coworking movement, Microsoft BizSpark, and about their new space in The Big Easy.
