## Help me out

1. I want to open up a co-working space in London, or possibly elsewhere in the UK. Idea is pretty fully-formed but I'm missing a few pieces to the puzzle. Anybody experienced in this?

2. I'm releasing my first non-free iPhone app pretty soon, marketing advice would be super useful. It's meant for London Pub Crawls.

## Let me know if I can help

1. JavaScript & iOS dev advice for newbies

2. Help with honing ideas esp. when it comes to maps & collaboration

3. I can play the guitar & sing pretty well [0]

Currently in Chamonix, back in London in May.

I helped (very slightly) get a co-working and business hub going in my area: http://sierracommons.org/. It's going to be celebrating its 5th anniversary in a few months, and I can possibly put you in touch with the guy who's done all of the real work in keeping it running, if your scope matches his.

It might help him out if your conversation with him gives him some ideas on presenting talks on starting co-working spaces, since that's the sort of thing he's into these days.

Send me an email (address is in profile) if you'd like to get in touch with him.


Slightly off-topic, but I've just written 10 mins of JS soundtracked by your busking. Cheers! :o)

More on-topic, have you contacted http://theskiff.org/ to see if they can help you fill any gaps?


Haha awesome! 10 minutes, I'm glad you lasted that long :) I hope it's the best JS you've ever written :P

I haven't contacted them, no. I've been meaning to go to Brighton though as I hear the tech scene down there is actually very interesting indeed. Thanks for the link, I'll get in touch!


Actually, I listened well past 10mins, but then the Oasis cover triggered a previous-life flashback and I had to stop :o)

FWIW, I work out of a coworking space at http://wyche.in, out here in The Shire. Ping me an email (in profile) if you'd like me to intro you to the boss here, in case that's helpful.


Well that's a discovery. I'm in Ledbury and had no idea that little oasis existed. I'll drop you an email, and hopefully we can meetup in the next week for a chat over a coffee/beer.


Woah. I'm in Ledbury for a few months as well. Really funny seeing other people from around here on HN!


vertex-four hit me up on Twitter sometime: @stevejalim


The Shire, eh? I'm from one of those!

I'll be in touch :) Thank you very much for the offer!

EDIT: Apologies about the Oasis cover, I'm afraid it's just such a moneymaker. I can't resist.
