Tony Bacigalupo of New Work City on the Disruptive Rise of Coworking

Tony Bacigalupo

The model of salaried employees working in offices is slowly shifting, says Tony Bacigalupo. And he’s accelerating that shift as mayor of New Work City, a coworking space in (you guessed it) New York City.

When he’s not coworking, Bacigalupo is out and about in the NYC tech scene helping organize meetups, Barcamps, TEDx, and Girl Develop It: low-cost technical classes for women.

Bacigalupo stopped by our SXSW #StartupLife Celebration last weekend. Below, he describes the beauty of coworking, a third alternative between corporate jobs and entrepreneurship, and boldness. Watch the video featuring Tony Bacigalupo.

    I love the title of this article. I think a lot of people living in the coworking world like me forget that this isn't how most people work and connect with others because it's our daily routine. This titled about disruption reminds me that coworking is really changing how we connect and work with others and that we need to continue education people about this movement.

    You can’t go wrong with any 1980s Mercedes SL series. I personally like the 450 SL. They are relatively cheap, last forever, and are pretty fast. I think they have more class then the BMW buts thats me. Personally I love my Porsche.

    Just about all of the things you point out happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this specific topic goes. Nevertheless there is one position I am not really too cozy with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the issue, permit me observe what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Very well done.



    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
