Fresnobeehive.com: “Co-founders Travis Sheridan and Irma Olguin, Jr. saw that other cities had such spaces, and felt Fresno’s creatives needed their own place: something better than a coffee shop, yet more accessible than an Executive Suite. They envision their space fostering creativity, collaboration and community.”
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s official, Hashtag Fresno is open for business! They even have their new, very stylish, website up. I like the green.
Our roving reporter, Mr. Jerry Fahrni, snapped this picture just yesterday.
Time to get downtown and give it a look.
Fresno Famous: “It will be open and available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. It will have strong, reliable internet access, modular desk units â€” and couches and a bar-sitting area â€” and plenty of dry-erase boards for anyone looking to collaborate. Plus, itâ€™s sandwiched between a coffee shop and a bakery, across the street from a pizza parlor and on the route of a major bus line.”
I hope, beyond hope, this is extremely successful. It’s nice to have a place to go full of creative people when you’re working alone.
There are 14 Genius Adopter subscriptions left, only $200.00 for one year. Get ’em while they’re hot!
HASHTAG Fresno: “A new collaborative co-work, hackerspace in the crazy Tower District. Caffeine, internet, and people like you. 24 hour access. Pizza across the street. Coffee next door.”
Makes me wish I were an Indie Developer! For $29.00/month you get a space to work with other creative people. Absolutely brilliant idea! Sure, I know it’s not new, but it’s needed in Fresno. There are a lot of creatives and developers there, they’re just hiding. Hopefully this brings them out into the open.
I know I’ve called Fresno a Technology Black Hole, but that one post made me realize Fresno has a large collective of great designers and developers, and probably generated more great reader commentary than any other post on my weblog.
I â™¥ HASHTAG Fresno, just for taking the leap of faith and giving this a go.
Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook, and don’t miss the 59 Days of Code kickoff tonight, 10PM at HASHTAG Fresno.
