Most of my friends, colleagues and even clients are aware of the fact that I am a strong supporter of telecommuting and flexible work hours. I formed the local freelance community several years ago and I have given numerous talks on freelancing, remote workers, outsourcing and everything related to that.
I live in a building with a hackerspace two floors above my place and a co-working space below my apartment.
However, several years ago I started (officially, full-time) my freelancing career at a coffee shop in my city. And I enjoy working from coffee shops so much that even when I am surrounded with hackerspaces and I have my own office that I pay rent for, I spend few days a week at “coffices”.
So I’ve decided to shed some light on the Coffice philosophy who hasn’t been practicing the art of cofficing so far and write a short book/paper called “The Coffice Resort” that you could download from Dropbox or alternatively from my blog (the former would be better though as to keep the heavy file traffic off my blog).
Feel free to obtain a copy for your Kindle from Amazon as well!
Feedback is welcome, the book is available for free – I’d be happy to reply to all interested wanna-be cofficers or coffee shops interested in attracting more cofficers to their venues 🙂
