Free Coworking project “CoWorking Verona” is currently collecting money through crowdfunding. The campaign has just started and will run for another 27 days. We wish the project many supporters!!! If you like to start a free coworking project yourself, connect yourself with other projects like “CoWorking Verona”, join the Facebook Group Free Coworking, enter yourself on the Free Coworking Map as a “Free Coworking Starter”, so that other people in your area can find you, to get in touch with you and your project. Please share your projects and experiences. Good luck to everybody!!!
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.
On day two, of the “Free Coworking” Campaign, the Group has already doubled in size. If we could double the size of the group every day now, we would reach our first target in 14 days!!! Spread the word, join the group!!! Many of you might ask themselves what we might do with all this Social Capital? For one, we could “put” ;-) it into a “Timebank” (see Mira Luna´s article on Shareable) or we put it to work for the growth of Coworking and Coworking Infrastructure. Become an activist for “Free Coworking” and build “Free Coworking” (link to follow ;-)) with us!
SOCAP (Social Capital Markets) has announced the dates for two of their major events this year: SOCAP/Europe in Malmö (Sweden) will take place 8th to 10th of May and SOCAP12 in San Francisco (CA) will take place 1st to 4th of October 2012. To get a good idea about these events see the video below. For further events check “Open International CoWorking Calendar“.
Film is a very powerful medium to communicate. Whether it is an emotional, spiritual or other subject. Coworking can use this medium in a very effective way as I showed with some examples before. I have personally gathered footage which I like use for a feature film documentary about coworking. I am inviting other film-makers to contribute their ideas and material to really make this a coworking project. For inspiration and support I like to present the current kickstarter campaign for the documentary film “My Reincarnation“. The film was shot over a twenty year period. I think we could do it for the coworking film over maybe a period of seven years. If you are interested to participate please contact me. Feel free to support the above kickstarter campaign for the theatrical release of “My Reincarnation” in the USA and elsewhere.
