WeWork has had a big impact on how people work together in shared office spaces, and that has had a big impact on the company’s valuation (a cool $20 billion). But the efforts to move from shared workspaces to shared living spaces (WeLive) — with communal kitchens and, of course, ping pong tables — hasn’t really taken off. Bloomberg’s Ellen Huet on What Life Is Like Inside WeWork’s Communal Housing Project: “Black mugs in the apartments urge tenants to Live Better Together, and the housekeepers pushing carts down the hallways wear black T-shirts that read, Do What You Love. Both are WeWork slogans. Some of the d├ęcor is best viewed at a distance: The record player on the eighth floor is never plugged in, and thousands of books in the building’s lounges have red $1 sale stickers on them from the Strand, a venerable New York bookstore.” The success of WeLive seems to depend on the idea that millennials are, at their core, a different species than the humans that came before them. Aside from a penchant for ironic t-shirts and an over-enthusiasm for facial hair, I think we’ll find that millennials are just like the rest of us.
