Virtual Coworking

UPDATED: April 2, 2020 Alkaloid is closed temporarily as we all practice shelter-in-place. We’ve taken the community online! I miss you all terribly and know that we will get through this together. Thank you for doing your part to slow the spread of the virus. Take care of yourself. Take care of each other. Take care of this place. — The last few days and weeks have been…pretty surreal. Like you, I’ve been monitoring news

This wasn't how I planned to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Alkaloid Networks but the coronavirus had other plans.
One of my members brought me a bottle of cava when she stopped by to pick up mail. It was so sweet (and yes, I cried just a little at her thoughtfulness). I plan on drinking this tonight at our #virtual #celebration. I'm looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces.

In case your wondering why I’m here, all alone I might add, I’m allowed to perform minimum basic operations. I checked to make sure. That means I’m receiving mail and packages. I’m either here or home.
I’m also working on the new #FREE #virtual #membership. ❤️ to you all!

Feeling sadness and gratitude as I sit in the empty space today.
I started Alkaloid Networks with a dream of giving people a place to connect and help each other. This community exists to combat loneliness and a lack of productivity.
This has not changed and doesn't now.
We can still achieve those goals.
Humanity can achieve these goals. Together.
Perhaps not in person for a bit but by using the technology we are fortunate to have access to use now.
I miss the members and I'm loving seeing your smiling faces on #Zoom. I'm committed to each of you, our community and being here on the back side of this crisis. #wegotthis
