This week Roberto Torres from Technically just shared a really great article about something that I’m really excited about: the Philly Dev Night Philly Game Mechanics community finding a home with Indy Hall.
Before I worked at Indy Hall, I was a camp counselor at Camp Sequoia, an overnight camp for kids with social skills difficulties on the autism spectrum and/or with ADHD. For 3 summers I wore many hats; developing the camp’s drama program, taking photos for the website, and chasing after the kids in the 8–12 year old bunk.
We spilled out into the night from the grand space of the Free Library. I climbed into my Lyft, and in a move that never happens my driver asked if I was an actress. Maybe it was the makeup I was wearing for the first time in years, or maybe he was just good at flattery. I’m tired, I’ll take it.
This year marks 10 years since I discovered coworking and made the decision to build the community that would eventually become Indy Hall.
A few years ago, I learned about the power of having a Spark File.
A little over a week ago, three guys from Campbell’s visited Indy Hall. The same group of guys stops by every now and then, they say they like to get out of the office when they have the opportunity. I’ve noticed how they tend to come in as a group, sit together as a group, leave together as a group – they confirm a lot of reasons as to why Indy Hall isn’t built for teams.
