What will the Coworking Wiki Look like? Here’s a glimpse at what we’re hoping to do:
A New, Map-Based Coworking Directory
Space owners will be able to control the content and appearance of their listing from their own website. We’ll provide you with the tools and assistance necessary to generate a little HTML code (you’ll have the option to keep it hidden on your own website), and the Coworking Directory’s search results will pull directly from this information. You’ll own your listing, and any changes you make will automatically display in the directory.
Resources for Present and Potential Coworkers
Being a member of the independent workforce can give you a lot of freedom, and also leave you with a lot of decisions to make. What kind of community could you expect from joining a coworking space? How will being a coworker affect you and your business? What tips and tricks are out there for newbies? The Coworking Wiki will serve as an aggregate for testimonials, news reports, and study data.
Resources for Space Owners and Catalysts
Catalysts will have access to a “Getting Started” guide, complete with advice on how to gauge interest for a new coworking space in your community and tips on marketing and fundraising. There will be a space for sharing business models and commonly used documents and forms. We’ll also update and organize the wiki’s list of press outlets, conferences, and external coworking directories.
A Platform for Greater Collaboration
Programs like the Coworking Visa and services like Cowoop demonstrate how coworking is challenging competitive models of doing business. The wiki can help increase and encourage collaboration between spaces while showcasing our best work.
Improved Organization, Layout, and Usability
By adopting some simple best-practices, the wiki can be made more reader-friendly and easier to navigate. Pages will have clearly defined headings, and broader topics will be broken down into subgroups. Put simply: you’ll know where to find what you’re looking for.
