Coworking spaces — where freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other independent workers pay a fee to share a workspace and benefit from working in the presence of one another — are hot. More than 160,000 people worldwide are members of over 3,000 coworking spaces, according to a recent report by DeskMag.com and Emergent Research, up from just 20,000 workers in 500 spaces in 2010.
