Werkable is a side project that emerged from a profound passion for coffee shops. I (Hank) have put a bunch of quite enjoyable time into building out the software behind werkable, but if this site is going to fulfill the vision of creating a global map of all of the workable spaces around the world, I’m going to need lots of help!
Contributing to Werkable is fun and easy. It basically involves going around to coffee shops and other work spots, taking pictures and notes and then adding it all into the WordPress back-end. I want to keep the quality of the content high (rather than the quick-and-dirty crowd-sourced style content you find in places like Yelp), which is why I’m trying to build a community of contributors who are passionate about workable spaces in their city. If this describes you, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll set you up with a login. By the way, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world. I’ve started in SF because that’s where I’m at, but I intend on adding of lots of different cities to the site as we find folks to contribute.
As you can see, everything is very early right now. This is a side project and I don’t have any immediate plans to do anything “serious” with this app. In addition to a community of contributors, I’m hoping to find a few other people who are as passionate about this idea as I am and can help grow the site slowly to see where everything goes from there.
