To clarify some points about „Free Coworking“ we start this series: „Free Coworking“ explained. Today I like to look at one of the most important aspects for „Free Coworking“ to become widespread and sustainable. Number One: Without „Applied Teamwork“ or „Collaboration“ there is no „Free Coworking“. In my introduction to „Free Coworking“ on the 6th of January I stressed the importance of Social Capital to attract Financial Capital to finance „Free Coworking“. This process requires that the community (Social Capital) not only exists in terms of grouped desks and chairs, but in terms of real collaboration and real common projects. It is not only the openness to collaborate, that is required, but real projects and the project experience that is gained from these projects. Without real projects, there is no real interaction. Without real interaction, there is no Social Capital. Enjoy the video below which illustrates „practical“ cooperation and „applied teamwork“ in an unusual setting :-)))
To illustrate and develop the idea of „Crowd Accelerated Innovation„, I will present partly for entertainment, certainly for fun and inspiration a song in several versions (see next couple of days) that certainly has got the potential to become a Coworking Song. For the gifted songwriters among us, maybe someone likes to offer a „coworking related text“ ;-) to sing along with. Today the „series“ starts with this unplugged version of „If a song could get me you“ by Marit Larsen
Leading up to XMAS and during the holidays we will turn off our TVs ;-) following Noam Chomsky´s good advice (see video below) to have more time to ourselves and to gain fresh insights for the new year. Join us if you like. (Thank you David McConville for sharing and The Juice Media Rap News for producing)
When you sit in a coworking space in the first world, you would rarely think of yourself as a member of a „Digital Factory“ (where physical brains are the machines of a linear production process). Even less likely that you would be grateful for this compared to someone in a „Digital Factory“ in Haiti carrying out a „Mircowork“ job and thereby feeding their family and friends. Leila Janah and Samasource are already changing the lives of people in 6 countries. I think they are also changing our lives in the „first world“. It is time to understand that we are not living on an island. „Microwork“ might come your way whether you like it or not. Create the world or the world will create you.
