We already wrote about the fact that everybody is different and works differently in "Coworking Personality Traits?". This now becomes wonderfully obvious in the pictures presented on http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/my-desk-is-my-castle-schreibtische-im-weltweiten-vergleich-fotostrecke-83041.html. Though the captions are in German, the vast variety of how people like their workplaces is just incredible and does not need further commenting. Have a look!
Are coworkers a special breed?

Coworking spaces come in a great variety of sizes and ambience, offering different services and amenities for different clientele in different locations (Spinuzzi 2012, p. 400). There are, however, common features which can be identified. Coworking spaces seek to provide their clients with the best features of three classical workspaces utilized by mobile knowledge workers: The flexibility of the home office, the vibe of the café and the facilities of the serviced or traditional office (DeGuzman & Tang 2011, p. 41; CBRE 2013, p. 9). ...Read more...

There is no commonly agreed upon definition of coworking and the concept is still evolving (DeGuzman & Tang 2011, p. 22; Spinuzzi2012, p. 433). Analysing elaborations on the concept by Coworking Wiki (no date), DeGuzman & Tang (2011) and Spinuzzi (2012) it can be deduced that essentially coworking aims to improve the work-life and performance of workers by providing them with professional and social networks (i.e. “community”) as well as a shared infrastructure. ...Read more...
My research has shown that coworking is not very well known outside the coworking community, yet. Especially among translators co-working means something totally different, namely
translating a text together. Hence, when I started to write about coworking, everybody said: "Well, I don't do co-working and, by the way, you have to
write it with a hyphen." The very best comment was: "What is cow orking?" At first I thought that person wanted to tell me a joke about cows until I realized that he was referring to the headline of one of my texts about coworking.
So, what does coworking mean? Is it a new concept? Does it come from the
agricultural industry? Or is it just a common typo? ...Read more...
