Brian Russell alerts us to a Coworking meeting in Carrboro:

Do you work at home? Are you a telecommuter? Run a business from your home office? The Town of Carrboro wants to know how it can help you. On May 8 at 10 am in Room 100 of the Carrboro Town Hall the Economic Development Department of the Town of Carrboro will be conducting a public forum to discuss this
topic.

If you know other people that work at home who might be interested in participating in the conversation, please invite them.

If you can’t make it let me know and we’ll work on a second event.
