Because:Freelancing is lonesome work, as I found out when I almost went crazy my first few weeks in Argentina giving the fulltime freelancing, work-from-home gig a try. I ended up finding a fulltime job in recruiting and social media, though we worked out of a shared workspace called Urban Station in the Palermo Soho neighborhood of Buenos Aires. This idea of collaborative, co-working sites takes it a step further. I think working in such an environment is the only way I could envision myself working freelance or “from home” fulltime.
