Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
Portland is the perfect city to co-work: free WiFi is practically ubiquitous in most locations, there are _lots_ of great places (with great eats!) to co-work and dedicated co-working businesses like Central Office or DeskHub.
What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?
I love the community building Workfrom promotes, the connected promotions, and discovering new, great places to gather and co-work through Workfrom meet-ups. I would like to see Workfrom.co’s web site incorporate features like on-line a WebRTC feature to allow remote teleconferencing and screen-sharing, and a button to indicate Clocking out, as well as clocking in to a location.
