„Free Coworking“ could be like a „Toyota Production System“ of Coworking

In his talk on „Science and Practice of Cooperation“ (see Video below thx David Hodgson for sharing) Harvard Professor Yochai Benkler develops the idea of systems of self-interest and systems of collaboration. In terms of computer hardware and software these systems could be identified with people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates on the one hand and networks and developments like Linux and Open Source on the other. In terms of knowledge transfer they could have representatives like Encyclopaedia Britannica and Wikipedia. Yochai Benkler is not a complete critic of the system of self-interest although he presents ample evidence that systems of collaboration are not only feasible, but also more sustainable and human.

First of all a big thank you to Jay for his great comment and very valuable points concerning the introduction of „Free Coworking“ in an already running coworking space!!! I am taking the unusual step to reply to his comment in a blog article, because I believe many people are interested to join the discussion.

„Free Coworking“: A „Free Apple“ Analogy

What would you rather have, a „free apple“ or a „paid apple“? By the way, I am talking about the fruit not the products from Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs ;-). I once had a box of apples that was left over from a conference. I could not take the box home, so I thought it would be nice to give the apples away. I went outside to offer the apples to the people walking by. What do you think how many people were happy to receive a fresh apple for free? I was very surprised, not many! I guess if you think about it, it is not very surprising, though I find, there is a good point for evolution here.

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 :)
