On the 20th of March 2012 we published our 500th article. In this series we like to review the articles that you (the readers) and we (the authors) both consider most relevant and important to demonstrate what “CoWorking News” represents today. In part 1 we looked at our start in 2009. Today we like to continue with our most important articles in 2010.

We are very happy to share and review with you the most interesting stages and developments of „CoWorking News“ at this „500-article-milestone“ today!!! Thanks to your interest and feedback, it was very easy to identify about 25 articles that you (the readers) and we (the authors) both consider most relevant and important to demonstrate what „CoWorking News“ represents today. This is the foundation we can build on and that we like to develop! Thank you for being our supporters and readers!!!
Wow, this could be a world premiere!!! People from all over the world analysing a world movement right from the beginning and thereby shaping the development of things to come! Everyone can take part as the database is open. You can download the database to your computer and start to analyse. And then? Then starts the innovation! By asking the right questions, the data will yield extremely interesting results. But even better, we look and go beyond the results. We start to change, what needs changing to improve the value of the „Free Coworking Skill Sharing“ (Input), (Output) for everyone involved.
Now we have scientific evidence by Margaret Chatham Crofoot and Ian C. Gilby that small groups have a competitive advantage over larger groups. Translated in terms of changing the world: Small groups like coworking spaces or action groups have a competitive advantage over society as a whole in bringing about a change. Here is what Chatham Crofoot and Gilby found in an experiment with wild capuchin monkey (Cebus capucinus) groups:“Although numerical superiority is assumed to provide a competitive advantage, small groups can generally defend their ranges, even when greatly outnumbered. The prevailing explanation for this puzzling phenomenon is that individuals in relatively large groups experience a greater temptation to flee from conflicts, in effect levelling the balance of power.“
Inspired by Marit Larsen´s song „If a song could get me you“ and my long-held conviction that coworking and radio can benefit hugely from another I like to ask whether 2012 will see „Coworking Radio“ come alive? A lot of what coworking has been about up to now passes via written texts (emails, websites etc.) – through an interface that is usually a keyboard. I believe spoken texts, live interviews, music, dancing and singing will be very important aspects of our work to come. In an empathic world we need to exchange more than short text messages and emails. Without the „spoken word and music“ enthusiasm for new challenges will be very scarce. States of „Flow“ as described by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi currently occur very rarely. We need to activate our voices and bodies to be more productive, more energetic. Our society and our planet needs action now. We need to become whole and happy individuals.
