“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.

Only introduced yesterday the new “Free Coworking” Skill Sharing Tool already attracted Coworkers from France, China, Kenya, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany. Consisting of an Input and Output form, Coworkers can indicate which Skills/Projects they like to offer to others in the group and which skills they like to attract or require to accomplish their work. The tool is completely open, free and does not require any registration. Just enter your data in the Input Form, and refer to the Output form to sort the information provided in the spreadsheet format. The tool is based on GoogleDocs. With the Help & Development Page provided, it is open for development and improvement by everyone interested. Most coworkers or cultural creatives believe they are alone (see film), so this Free Coworking Skill Sharing Tool is an excellent way to make yourself visible and to strengthen the community by becoming part of it. Every entry counts and makes the tool more valuable for everyone involved. Join and spread the word for “Free Coworking“!

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 :)

To give the “Free Coworking” Movement a clear identity and face we have developed a new logo. By means of co-creation within our Facebook Group we have now come up with a new logo. With contributions from Gunasekar C Rajaratnam, Sidi Benmoh, Loo Robert and Mark Goldsworthy we had excellent ideas and wonderful logos! The creative contributors and the other members of the group that got involved voted finally for the logo of Mark Goldsworthy. Congratulations to the “winner” and a huge thank you for everybody who made this possible! I hope every present and future activist for “Free Coworking” can identify with the logo and is happy to use it. Please comment!
