Hawaii's First Coworking Space

Larry On the Loose!

One of our most cherished features here at BoxJelly is our pet friendly environment. People love seeing coworker’s furry friends running around the office. Contrary to typical pet friendly spaces, we don’t just limit our appreciation to dogs. In fact, BoxJelly’s pet is fuzzy rather than furry.

indigo indigo

fishcake presents indigo indigo, featuring the works of Ann Asakura, Akemi Cohn, and Donna Miyashiro. Following the success of fishcake’s indigo show last year, they’ve asked artists to take their creative impulse a step further: to play, challenge themselves, and surprise us with their indigo experiments. Curator Keiko Hatano muses, “Usually indigo is more utilitarian – for cushions, towels and sometimes clothing. What will happen if we use indigo on different materials and mediums? How can the artists add their own twist to this tradition?”

Kleverdog

Juicy Journals 
LOS ANGELES, CA
Tuesday 4/29/14

There’s public transport, but then, there’s the sharing economy. Juicy gave us access to a promo code for Lyft, so of course I was going to try it despite my Uber allegiances. Since the app wasn’t connecting me with my driver, I couldn’t tell him I pinned the wrong address (sorry, Paul!); so instead, I went with uberX. Seriously, I think I found my part-time job once it hits Honolulu.

“Cabbing” still didn’t save me nearly enough time between then and my 6:15pm Amtrak departure, but I HAD to meet David; he’s the founder, AND from Hawai’i! Sam (the driver) said he’d pause the meter and wait 10minutes. I gave myself 5.

Malcolm Gladwell talks about the reliability of first impressions, and a first impression is pretty much all that I got of Kleverdog (and that Kleverdog got of me). Comfortable, active, and creative are the first words that come to mind. And as much of a rush as I was in, David just smiled, laughed, and said he’d be looking forward to next time we could talk story. Looks like I’ll just have to make another trip to LA!

Opodz

Juicy Journals 
LOS ANGELES, CA
Tuesday 4/29/14

Public transportation might not be the most reliable, it is one of the  most effective forms to get to know the city and its people. Busses usually have bad raps for carrying bums and degenerates, but really, it carries everyone who can’t drive (i.e. the elderly and grade school children), or doesn’t want to drive (i.e. urban commuters, bicyclists, me).

Getting off the bus into Little Tokyo, I ran into Angel. She had been left by her husband, needed money for meds because she had an infection, and was [supposedly] pregnant. I couldn’t exactly make out her injury, but at one point I thought I could see straight through to her bones. I sympathized even more because she’s from Fountain Square in Indianapolis (just a bridge away from The Bureau, where I’m writing this now).

The thing about “bums and degenerates” is that they know their areas very well. Since I apparently can’t use [Google] maps, I threw Angel a $10 which I used to comfort my conscience, and for her to show me where I was going. How pretentious of me to think she didn’t know where I’d be talking about, because as soon as I said “Opodz” instead of “an office”, she immediately took me straight to the front door!

Opodz is fairly new, as well as the developments in and around Little Tokyo. In a lot of ways, Opodz reminded me of BoxJelly – our space size is about the same, number of members is about the same, and we even have some of the same bottles of scotch in our bars. But something Opodz is already experiencing that BoxJelly hasn’t yet is residential development. Because we’re in Kaka’ako, a redeveloping urban district of Honolulu, our neighbors are all businesses. There are some residences (a condo., an old folks home, and a homeless shelter), with more on the way (luxury high-rise condos), but seeing how Opodz was trying to build community made me wonder what’s in store as our neighborhood changes.

I got the same feeling as I did with NextSpace, in that Opodz was very neighborhood oriented. Lots of their members and inquiries come from people who live in Little Tokyo. They set up cafe seating outside, and offer free space for local artists to feature their work – such gallery space is not common in LA. But for being the new kid on the block, all their reserved desks were filled, their open desks were active, and there are a number of discounts that their members had to neighboring businesses. Looks like I have get on my neighborhood relations game once I get back!
