Around COCO he is known as a frequenter of our Thursday happy hour, a keeper of his dedicated desk, an educational technology wizard, and a Halloween enthusiast (he was a red panda this year).

    The Invention of Enterprise: Entrepreneurship from Ancient Mesopotamia to Modern TimesEdited by David S. Landes, Joel Mokyr, and William J. BaumolI picked this book up from the library to get a historical perspective on entrepreneurship. Enterpreneurship is a slippery term, of course: some authors, such as Schumpeter, reserve it only for creating new combinations; others apply it to any new business, such as a new coffee shop that is essentially similar to the other coffee shops with which it is competing. The authors of this historical collection—of which there are many, since the…

    From Max Weber: Essays in SociologyEdited by Hans H. Gerth and C. Wright MillsI picked this vintage book up at the used book store for, I think, a dollar. The 1958 cover is a thing of beauty: Anyway. I didn't actually read the entire book—it's excerpts, many from the other Weber works I have read: Economy and Society and The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. Instead, I read, and will briefly review, the editors' 74-page introduction.Why the introduction? I was recently looking for an overview of Weber's life and thought, especially as I began contrasting the Protestant…

Working freelance has a huge number of advantages: a work/life balance many would kill for, the freedom to choose exactly how you want to work, the luxury of being able to dictate your own prices, pay rises and bonuses, and the opportunity to get to the post office / bank / gym when everyone else is at work. One of the other plus-sides is the freedom to work in your pajamas all day if you want to, or indeed not get out of bed at all.

    Last month, I went to my fifth coworking conference and I noticed the same questions about building a coworking community echoing again, as they continues to do on the Google Coworking Group. The same answers seem to repeat themselves (networking, beer:30, meetup groups) with slight nods from the crowds, however if everyone really knew the answer, then they would’ve stopped asking the questions awhile ago. Community building is complicated, but also very easy if you have time on your side and are willing to listen. Throughout owning & operating coworking spaces for over five years in…
