Born in ... your cube?

Entrepreneurship is no stranger to college campuses, as pointed out in a Consumed column this weekend in The Gray Lady. Personalities from Rick Rubin to Mark Zuckerberg have hatched businesses from the comforts of their dorm rooms.

But what about from their office towers? As more people get laid off, entrepreneurship numbers are swelling. How many people are actually building their businesses while still employed, as backup plans? How do you do it without getting yourself fired? Or, perhaps more inconveniently, having your employer claim ownership over your baby?

If you have any pearls of wisdom — or know of companies who have started this way — do let us know via in comments, emails or tweets (@newentrepreneur).
