Somehow our week in Paris at OuiShare Fest went by at 1000 miles an hour.
More than answer lots of questions and walking away with a cookie cutter plan for the rest of the year the week has left me more confused and curious than ever.
Don’t feel sad, this is my favourite place to be. Sure it is uncomfortable and unpredictable, this is what doing your own thing feels like and if you stare hard enough you will see life is made up of ‘un’ things, like being un-employable.
On the way through the OuiShare fest I was looking for how to put what I heard into action when we got back, how to connect people, what would be useful to the @Work Hubs community?
There is only so much you can say about coworking, desks, community and coffee.
After a while the never ending future of work chat gets nauseating too, I still keep going back for more though!
Getting people in a room to do their work together needs another element to it.
How Coworking makes the next London economy is intresting.
I love you to think I came up with this but it was over a green tea with Indy Johar that I got the line from him.
So now we are looking for the next chapter in @Work Hubs to combine this element, what we have learnt over the last year from Diego and his Common Good projects and plough it into making a coworking space that is connected to what is going on in the neighbourhood.
Where @Work Hubs is based is a neighbourhood right in the heart of central London, yes people live here!!! We know local restaurants and shops but they don’t know what @Work Hubs is, or what coworking is and why should they?
Part of connecting the dots next is the Map JAM next Thursday where we will add to the already HUGE Map of Collbarative places that Shareable have co-created.
These have to be real people and not “Death Star” start ups, like Uber, Airbnb, Task Rabbit. The projects we are mapping are near us and then we can go and use.
