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!
I like to invite you on a journey that for many people might sound a little crazy, but just give it a go. It will only cost you 5 minutes and I guarantee you a laugh in the video below: Noise is extremely powerful. It is very difficult to ignore and it will even have an effect on you long after it stopped. At this time of the year leaf blowers could provide this sound for many of us. I guess many people will agree with me that they are a complete nuisance!!! (They are too noisy, present a considerable source of air pollution, produce dust clouds which contain potentially harmful substances, kill substantially more small animals, unnecessarily use fossil fuels etc. …) compared to a technology like a rake or broom.
Auf dieser Playlist stehen 43 Videos mit in Summe fast 16 Stunden Material zur Verfügung (u.a. mit dem Thema Inkubator und Coworking). Als Einstieg empfehle ich jedoch das Video von Prof. Gerald Hüther – „Discover your potential“. (oder wie man/frau es wiederfindet :-)) oder (was wir von den Lachsen lernen können) Die Geschichte mit der Küchenschabe ist etwas makaber, da müsst ;-) Ihr durch… Der Lohn: Wir können uns gegenseitig begeistern!!!
There are so many ways in which you can become a „Free Coworking Sponsor“. Up to now for example you could as a „paid coworking“ space operator start to offer „free coworking“ alongside your paid offer. All you needed to do was to enter yourself in the „Free Coworking Directory“ (Input, Output).
