I first heard about Beta House in Scott MacMillians Pax East presentation on his own game company. They had used Beta House as an office location. Working there got them out of the house, serious about work, and provided a community structure.
Beta House as a concept interested me, so I dug around a bit for information about it. This Boston Globe article is from 2007, and their talk about the opening of Beta house. Newer (although still outdated rumors) claim expansion. But most people I talk to think it has closed, and speak wistfully about it as part of some by gone era.
What kinds of things have you done that exemplify being fearless?
