- Greetings, and Thank You for 2012
- The New Space in 2013
- Business and group discounts
The first draft of this newsletter was written in an afternoon at CoworkBuffalo, where a waterfront entrepreneur, an indexer, a system adminstrator, a self-employed web marketing manager, and a dilettante web writer were finishing the last of the afternoon’s Colombian Ocamonte brew (sponsored by Doolli!). We collaborated on grammar questions, router repairs, business ideas, and other things that are way more fun than talking to oneself.
Which brings us to the point of this newsletter, and every newsletter, and every tweet and Facebook post and basically everything we do. We are four folks who are tremendously grateful that Buffalo has so many people who do interesting work, and want to do it with other people around. We appreciate your business, your energy, and, sometimes, your patience with a young team working in a somewhat new field.
As we head into 2013, let’s just say it a few more times: thank you, thank you, thank you.
The New Room: Team Desks, Casual Table, and Less Random Stuff!
Most people around here don’t use “Vilgot,” “Vika Amon,” or “Besta” in casual conversation. But CoworkBuffalo knows from IKEA, and we’ve just made another run to fill out our second office bay. That empty room next to the main space, where we keep random supplies and have occasional get-togethers? It’s full of Swedish-designed flat-pack boxes right now.
When they’re assembled, and after a few remaining pieces are obtained, CoworkBuffalo’s new room will have:
- Two desks next to each window, allowing teams of two or three to get away from the “main space” and collaborate, or for those needing extended Skype or conference call time.
- Four desks that can easily be rearranged into a single conference table.
- A central bar-height table with stools, for eating lunch away from your “desk,” chatting, or doing some group work
- Closed shelving for all our miscellaneous stuff (and yours, if you need)
- More wall decorations
And the main room gets a few upgrades, too: a “kitchen car” to hold coffee and dish supplies, freeing up another table, and more wall decorations, too. We’re excited.
Business and group discounts
CoworkBuffalo is a great place to host meetups and small events. We are the home for bfloFRED (Buffalo Front-End Developers Meetup), OpenHack nights, Buffalo Learning to Code, and quite a few team meetings, weekend projects, and other fun.

See you in 2013 everybody,
