By now, coworking is a standard concept among city dwellers. Once a hip, new trend among the millennial crowd, it is now arguably mainstream, with an estimated 781 coworking spaces throughout the US, according to a 2013 report — a considerable increase from the very first of its kind, which opened only 10 years ago. A simple Google search illustrates the dense concentration of these spaces within cities: there are some 76 coworking offices in San Francisco alone, representing almost 10 percent of the entire pool of such facilities nationwide. This is not to say that every urbanite regularly uses a coworking facility, but it is likely that if they were to be stopped on the street, they could not only explain it, but tell you where the nearest one is. The same cannot be said for most rural communities, towns, villages, and small cities across the country.
