Practice Space & Tim Devin (author of “Mapping out utopia: 1970s Boston-area counterculture“) will be leading a “counterculture walking tour” in and around Inman Square on Sunday Nov. 3 from 1 PM – 2:30 PM.
Devin, a local librarian and expert on the Boston-area counterculture of the 1970s, gave a similar tour earlier this fall and (having missed the first go-around) we’ve been anxiously awaiting this follow-up.
“In the 60s and 70s, the Boston area was one of the focal points of the counterculture–with Inman Square as one of its hubs,” Devin writes.
The tour will highlight a dozen or so locations in Inman, ranging from “the Trout Fishing in America alternative school to the Mass. Feminist Credit Union.” We’re curious to hear what was happening at 1035 Cambridge St. (the former A.R. Hyde Shoe Factory, now Geek Offices coworking space) at the time.
The tour departs at 1 PM from Practice Space, (1307 Cambridge St., Cambridge) on Sunday Nov. 3. The tour is free. Families and kids are welcome.
At the Geek Offices’ Holiday Party late last month, Geek Offices members were talking about the quality of our coworking environment and the reasons for their continued membership, many for over three years. Geek Offices doesn’t have free beer on Thursdays, seminars on finding the right VC or a March Madness NCAA pool. We don’t bake cookies or host wellness classes but can point you to the vending machine across the hall or the Pilates studio down the street. Orange cushion chairs are not in our lobby.
What we do offer is a serious, low-cost coworking environment, where, without interior distractions, members can discuss assignments in our lunch room or at our community conference table, shut an office door to complete a project, put in ear phones while researching an article, or animatedly argue over the latest plot twist in the their new video game. Geek Offices coworking has a nice mix of group discussion and individual effort.
Members at the Holiday Party agreed that, in a personality test, Geek Offices members would be introverted but with a fair amount of extroversion. Hey, we’re in a coworking space so we can get down to work while being surrounded by others, not sitting in our bedrooms in our Inman Square walkup.
If you want the ability to get things done while being in the company of like-minded workmates, then you should tour Geek Offices in Inman Square and see our available offices and work stations. With Clover, 1369 Coffee House, Kimchi Kitchen, Bukowski’s, All-Star Sandwich and 30 other restaurants and bars nearby, all of the excitement doesn’t have to be inside the coworking space.
Two private offices are now available at Geek Offices coworking space in Cambridge’s Inman Square. Both rent for as low as $950 per month ($950 for 1 person, $150 for each additional person up to a total of 5). One is a 17′ x 20′ (340 sq. ft) space. The other is a 14′ x 12′ (168 sq. ft) corner office shown here. In addition, Geek Offices has 10 open cubicles available in its open floor plan coworking space.
