Well, actually, just you.

Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman and local MLA John van Dongen were both treated to first-ever’s this past week as author, speaker, and futurist Owen Greaves organized a #TechAbby tweetup at SwitchCube, the Fraser Valley’s first coworking space.
Local man-about-town, social media personality, and entrepreneur Rick Rake was also present.
The purpose of the tweetup?
Simply to get together, celebrate technology in Abbotsford, and develop new relationships. Banman tweeted about the event where, yes, we talked his ear off about coworking and what it can do for the local entrepreneurial community: (more…)
SwitchCube is hosting a tweet-up tomorrow, Friday the first of February, right here in our offices at 33820 S. Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

We’re reliably informed that MLA John van Dongen is coming, as are many other business, technology, and social media personalities. There will be food, and coffee, and good conversation.
And we’d like to invite you to be there!
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to build websites or apps. Now you’ve got a chance to do so, free of charge, at SwitchCube this Thursday night.
The classes will be taught by Colin Schmidt, chief executive of Cnawlece corporation (the name means “knowledge” in middle English). He’s a developer, and inventor, and a teacher, and he’s going to walk through a very simplified way of building websites, business systems, and pretty much anything.
The first session is Thursday night at SwitchCube from 7PM to 9:30, and seven more sessions will be held weekly until February 28. We’re located at 33820 S. Fraser Way in Abbotsford, BC (Google Map), not far from Five Corners in old downtown Abbotsford.
Interested? Register here!
OK, so we’re pumped.

Calling all coworkers in the Fraser Valley!
We’ve opened the doors at SwitchCube, right in the heart of downtown Abbotsford. Right at 33820 S. Fraser Way, to be more precise.
We’re having an open house on Tuesday next week. Well, any day, really … but Tuesday in particular. The actual meet-up time is 3:30 to 5:00 in the afternoon, but you’re welcome to pop in all day if you want for a free day of coworking.
The space doesn’t have everything we want yet, but we’ve got desks, chairs, WiFi, a coffee maker, a fridge, tunes for a little bit of gentle background, and more.
Come on in and join us!
And of course, a couple shots of us in the space … click for a non-sucky resolution.
