Today, 5 years ago, Alexander, Florian and I started CoWorking News. We are very happy to see that with every year, the blog reaches more and more readers. Compared to last year, the blog grew by another 46% which equates to about 12.000 readers per month now (compared to about 8.000 per month, at the same time last year).

Last year I gave you a short rundown of what happened in the first four years.

The growth of free coworking that I predicted at the beginning of last year is also showing very strongly this year. A very good indicator is the Google graph for coworking and free coworking that was produced by Google today (see snapshot below):

CoWorking News is very happy to announce and support the start of the empirical Coworking Study of the two psychologists Julia Andorfer (for Master Thesis) and Cornelia Gerdenitsch (for PhD) at the University of Vienna today.

Cornelia and Julia are trying to find answers to the following questions: Is entrepreneur’s engagement boosted by social support? How is it possible that coworkers develop so many new creative ideas in Coworking Spaces? What makes them successful in implementing these ideas in start ups?

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!

Since our start of CoWorking News in June 2009, we have published in total 540 articles on Coworking. Since I predicted the increase of Free Coworking at the beginning of 2012, we dedicated 50 articles to “free coworking”. As one of many indicators on the growth of coworking and free coworking have a look at the two google trend graphs above.
