This is something coworkers could do as well!!! The latest version of the Allgäu-Orient Rally 2013 was sold out in a little more than 2 minutes. 111 participants signed up in this short period to take part in this rally for a good cause. The rules: You can take part in a car that costs less than 1111 Euros, or is older than 20 years. Starting in the south of Germany, the participants will drive to Amman in Jordan, where they will leave their cars for a good cause. What a great idea!!! I think a rally like this would be wonderful for coworking as well. Anybody inspired?

This is article number 522 and we are still hungry for more ;-) Talking about food, we hope we have give you a lot of „food for thought“ on coworking, and we like to continue to do so. This is not so much about our blog, but about what we can achieve together. That is why we like to talk about what you do, your coworking spaces and your projects!!! On this special day, our 3rd birthday, we like to share „Incredible Edible“ with you, which has also been going for three years. We love the project and the people!!! There is so much in this project that the coworking community can use and develop!!! Enjoy the video and be inspired!!!
Already one of the great fruits of the widespread discussion on free coworking is the acknowledgement that paid coworking has lost its bearings in many instances. Alex Hillman on his blog dangerouslyawesome puts it like this: „MANY paid coworking spaces aren’t differentiating themselves from business centers and aren’t keeping in line with the coworking core values. Social capital is often missing from the exchange between the provider and the member.“ I fully agree with Alex!!!
Philip Rosedale, the creator of Second Life is interested in coworking and the future of work. With his new company „Coffee & Power“ he is trying to connect the techie and coworking community. With three so called „Workclubs“ already opened in San Francisco, Santa Monica & Portland (Oregon) (see Free Coworking Directory) he attempts to bridge „the classic digital/brick and mortar divide“ as one user says. Asked in the video below to his core motivation for „Coffee & Power“ he says: „Build an infrastructure where people can build things really, really quickly without the bu..sh.t (;-) of … (in short) … Get people to work really fast together“.
