Less than a year after selling popular travel site Kayak to Priceline for $1.8 billion, cofounder Paul English is preparing his next act: a tech incubator in Boston’s Fort Point Channel neighborhood.

English is planning an “outrageous” workspace that in the evenings will transform into a night club, with regular events that “celebrate creative people” such as dancers, sculptors, and clothing designers.
“When people visit, even if they don’t know what we’re doing, we want it to be so amazing that they say, ‘Please, can I work there?’” English said. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
