Red Bull calls it an academy, I would call it a mixture of music incubator and free coworking space. It is located in the Monahan Express Company Building on 18th Street in Manhattan. Red Bull Music Academy refashioned four floors (including the ground floor and basement) into a new kind of social space (see gallery for pictures). Architect Jeffrey Inaba describes it as: “different from a store, gallery or café …. When viewed from the street, people will see that this is a unique kind of social space. The walls are organized so passersby and guests can look across the ground floor and get a glimpse of the activities taking place inside.”

We are very happy to share with you the Coworking Study by Katy Jackson. She wrote: “I recently completed a study on Coworking and surrounding factors for my Masters degree. My intention was always, in true coworking spirit, to share my final report with the coworking community so that it can hopefully be in some way useful to people, spark ideas or just generally make people think differently.”
Thank you!!! Great!!!
Coworking Video on “Mutinerie” in Paris (France) develops ideas on working “Free Together” and “Social Innovation”Veröffentlicht am 4. März 2013 von Felix Schürholz in Kategorie: CoWorking Basics, Konzeptionelles, CoWorking News International, Videos | Kommentieren »
While Mutinerie in Paris is not a “Free Coworking” Space by definition yet, but interpreting the arguments in the video below by Laura Moeller Henriksen, it might not be long, before that changes. The video has 4 chapters: 1. “Libres Ensemble” (Free Together), 2. Creating Value (Arguments close to the context of social capital), 3. Challenging Status Quo, 4. Future Developments (Social Innovation)
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?
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!
