Silicon Ireland News is giving away as part of its partnership with Startup Academy a free coworking desk in Belfast for 1 year: “No cost what so ever, except that we want to be able to report on your startups progress during that year. So if you have a startup and would love to get out of your house, then why not get in touch and tell us about your startup and why you would benefit from a coworking desk for the year.”  For more details see the Free Coworking Directory (Entry 36).

How Coworking can get massive inspiration from the success of Linux and Wikipedia

Many people regard Linux today as the most successful operating system in the world. Just a few facts: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Ebay etc. run their systems on Linux. 90% of today’s 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including the 10 fastest. That is what I call a success story!!! And the special thing about Linux: It is free and open source! But Linux does not stop there. You will find Linux in new televisions, in car entertainment systems and in telephones. This month saw the premiere of the Ubuntu Smart Phone Operating System at CES in Las Vegas. And Ubuntu (you guessed it) is based on Linux and it stands for: “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”. And of course this is what Linux, Wikipedia and Coworking are all about!
