Thanks to the sharing of Pavel Binar and Bert-Ola Bergstrand I can present today the wonderful talk and plea for „Co-Development“ by Charles Leadbeater on TED. Leadbeater´s arguments for consumer driven innovation are extremely powerful and very relevant to a movement like „Free Coworking„. Only by experiment, trial and error, enough people collaborating will Coworking and „Free Coworking“ evolve. Join the movement, join the development :)

„Free Coworking“ explained (Part1): Applied Teamwork

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 :-)))

„Free Coworking“: It is free?! Yes, it is really free!!!

We live in a very paradoxical world. We want most things for free: free internet, free music, free films. If it can be reproduced easily or it is digital, of course we want it for free. When it comes to collaboration a lot of people suddenly hesitate. Collaboration for free? No, that is not possible. Why is that? We are so used to being manipulated by nearly everything that is part of our daily life including ourselves that it takes a real effort to become free. Free of our outdated experiences? Just think, when it comes to expectations people have of you?  How free you are? I like to show the video of the crowd starting dancer again:

Coworking Evolution: Coworking goes „Free Coworking“

Yes it is true. Coworking is going to evolve into „Free Coworking“. I predict that within the coming year you will see a marked increase in „Free Coworking“ offers. What do I mean by „Free Coworking“?  „Free Coworking“ means that as a coworking space user you do not pay for the use of the desk, chair etc. How is that possible? Someone else is going to pay :-) !!! Why would anyone want to pay for your coworking space usage? Because „this someone else“ is benefiting from your work. This might be a customer or client, a member of your project team, an organisation, a small or large cooperation, a foundation, the state – in short „Financial Capital“ will pay the bill.
