Coworking

BY MARA HAUSER
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 01, 2015

As a student of the evolving workplace, Mara Hauser explores how technology and culture have inspired new ways to work. Using historical references to collaborative farms (1700s), sweatshops (1800s), and the age of electronic business machines (1900s), Mara shares insights on the dynamic shifts that took place when technology got smaller, lighter, and more portable, allowing people to work from anywhere. As the most recent stage in this evolution, “coworking” is the new, economical alternative for working independently—but not alone—in a flexible, productive, shared workspace.

This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ostrava Vol. 8) contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students.

The Gentleman Honey Farmer

Pecha Kucha Volume 1 - Creating A Healthy City Urban beekeeping, along with other urban agriculture practices, has been on the rise in recent years. Drastic declines in honey bee populations over the last decade have severe economic and environmental implications. Honey bee colonies have demonstrated higher survival rates in urban settings. Many world-class cities have adopted policies that allow for reasonable beekeeping practices, while other municipalities maintain policies that are detrimental to the survival of a creature whose existence is critical to a healthy ecosystem. This presentation aims to provide a general overview of urban beekeeping practices. Come hear more from Adam Nelson is the founder of GeoBees, an early-stage software development company dedicated to apicultural research using geospatial analysis.
