Coworking spaces are collaborative workspaces, and interaction should be one of their main offerings. How many events do they offer per month for it? And how do they link to each other, both within their own cities and across borders?

Quantum ambivalence, or, a hitchhiker’s guide to the 2nd Coworking Europe Conference (part1) | Topologies of Value by Sebastian OlmaA year ago, exactly at the time when the first European coworking conference was taking place in Brussels, the betahaus crew and I were sitting together in Berlin collaboratively trying to write a book on the issue of coworking in general and the betahaus experience in particular.

Freelancing offers a number of powerful advantages: you can work from home; you get to avoid the commute; you can skip the office gossip. But it also delivers a bunch of disadvantages; you have to work from home; you never leave the house; you have no one to gossip with.
