There are short-term coliving spaces popping up all over Europe, which naturally include coworking facilities. So let’s say you’re a digital nomad looking to spend anywhere from a couple of nights to a couple of months in a spot. Where can you live and work with ease? Well, since we love to remote work ourselves, we decided to throw together a little list for you.
“What is coworking?” you write, “Coworking is a service that rents the use of an electrical outlet and a wifi connection.”
On why I was wrong to think that an open plan office was the worse kind of office, because a shared office space beats it.
I’ve been remote working for 12 years and I love the explosion of coworking spaces that have opened over the past few years. But so many coworking spaces get the basics wrong… So what follows is a simple (and I’d argue to say obvious) checklist for creating a great coworking space that entrepreneurs like myself enjoy working from.
They can be noisy but co-working spaces also offer an environment where professionals can wait out the volatility of the job market.
More than one-third of U.S. libraries offer space for mobile workers and dedicated coworking spaces. Those coworking at a library often have access to large work tables, wireless printing, meeting rooms for collaboration, and access to business and research resources most individuals can’t afford including demographics and other market research and statistics, legal databases and professional journals.
Assuming that as a digital nomad, you’re aware that you are not required to move into a tourist area and live next door to other digital nomads and that there is, in fact, a huge world of places where you can live and still access food and coffee — then there’s no reason at all that you can’t work in a coffee shop.
So this is the post I wish I’d read myself back when I decided to work remotely. If you don’t want to read the whole thing, I can even summarize it for you, right here: different people like different kinds of work environments; “working remotely” doesn’t have to mean “working from home”; and if you’re going to work remotely, you should find the work environment that’s the right fit for you.
Remote Year program sends participants around the world as they continue to work.
Sounds, particularly those made by other humans, rank as the No. 1 distraction in the workplace. According to workplace design expert Alan Hedge at Cornell, 74 percent of workers say they face “many” instances of disturbances and distractions from noise.
I’ve seen a number of posts about people’s experiences as participants of Remote Year, but I’m wondering if anyone can share their experience in any other remote coworking program. Terminal 3 and The Remote Experience both seem more attractive to me than Remote Year based on price, flexibility, and accommodations, but I haven’t been able to find any detailed personal accounts. Perhaps that’s just because these other programs are younger.
The idea of mixing work and travel isn’t a bad one. But co-working with fellow “digital nomads” on a grown-up version of summer camp sounds like a nightmare.
Several startups are offering off-hours restaurant spaces as an affordable alternative to traditional coworking offices.
Sure, the coworking movement may be a fad, but these researchers say it has a surprisingly strong psychological basis.
In places like Detroit and Cleveland a grassroots coworking movement is welcoming minority and low-income entrepreneurs and artists.
If you’re a footloose creative soul searching for a more affordable and friendly space than a typical rented or home office, coworking could work for you.
Thousands applied for the inaugural class of travel start-up Remote Year. Here’s what happened to the 68 people who went.
What can those who want to create more innovative and collaborative workplaces today — whether that’s a better office in a traditional organization, a coworking space, a startup incubator, or a fab lab — learn from the workshops of the Renaissance? The bottegas’ three major selling points were turning ideas into action, fostering dialogue, and facilitating the convergence of art and science.
Rising office rents make co-working spaces an attractive, and practical, alternative. Could they also foster a ‘magic spark’ among entrepreneurs?
It’s clear that co-working is far more than a passing trend, it’s now a huge global industry providing essential services to communities of start-ups, entrepreneurs and freelancers in cities around the world. In fact, these spaces are becoming so popular, some experts believe they could be the predominant way in which we work in the future, taking over from more traditional office environments.
