10 Very Cool Coworking Spaces From Around the World (pics)  Coworking is an emerging trend for a new generation of workers looking to avoid the traditional 8-5 shift in a boring cubicle, or the dreaded commute. Coworking spaces have been developed by entrepreneurs, consultants, and freelance artists seeking an alternative to working in coffee shops and cafes, or the isolation of independent or home offices. Coworking spaces offer the appeal of a progressive workspace, blended with a casual cafe like feel, while still offering all of the important things you need to run your business.

Making my way to World Maker Faire 2012 Last year, I attended World Maker Faire in New York, coming back from a short trip to visit the SketchUp team in Boulder.After 2 days of great fun, I knew I was hooked. Over the week end, I had met new heroes and new friends, I had seen technology I only dreamt of until then, I had played with the best toys on earth, I had memories for ever. It was a great inspiration when formulating the concept idea for Le FabShop, the entrepreneur project I won with the Saint-Malo 2015 competition.Earlier this year, the prize money helped me fund my trip to the Hardware Innovation Workshop in Palo Alto, and to Maker Faire Bay Area, mother of all Maker Faires.

Maker culture The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture. Typical interests enjoyed by the maker culture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and traditional arts and crafts. The subculture stresses new and unique applications of technologies, and encourages invention and prototyping.[1] There is a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them creatively.

What Honeybees Can Teach Us About Gang-Related Crime - Neighborhoods There is a mathematical model in the field of theoretical ecology that describes how honeybees and chimpanzees and lions divide up space. In the grand competition for limited resources – i.e., dinner – bee colonies and prides of lions will generally create non-overlapping territories. Boundaries form between one group and the next, as the least bit of competition arises between them, and invariably that boundary sits smack in the middle between the beehives (or lion dens) on either side of it. All of this sounds a little too simplistic to describe human behavior. As humans, we’d like to think that we rationalize our actions, that we fit them into more complex worldviews than a honeybee could ever contemplate (example: I believe in the importance of small businesses, therefore I shop at the local mom-and-pop corner store). But P.

Its most recent is the Pirate National Committee (PNC), formed in 2012 as a coalition of state parties.

Our goal is to map the drivers of change in a particular domain, to identify critical, early-stage opportunities for disruptive innovation, and to collaboratively design new incentives and unconventional actions to propel such innovation forward. Each Lab we undertake is a year-or-more-long effort, in which we bring this network together for evocative learning experiences and field visits and hands-on mapping, collaboration and incentive design sessions.
