Links of the Week

Links of the WeekYay for Friday afternoons! It’s always been my favorite time of the work week because whether or not things are done, people start wrapping things up in neat little bows and a sense of relief starts to wash over me.

As I write this, the mood at Office Nomads (normally a light one) is starting to lift. Erik and I just exchanged words over who should replace the beer he drank from the fridge (which he bought in the first place). I bowed out when I realized I could just knock back some whiskey while I put this post together instead. Ah life in an office without HR, rules!

  • I stumbled upon Luck of Seven a bit late as the project is coming to an end, but thanks to the wonders of the internets, I can catch up on the adventures of this “open-source journey documenting free culture, social innovators and global change.”
  • I don’t play Second Life, but this came through on my “co-working” Google Alert and I think it means that coworking is going to take place in Second Life. Weird.
  • This has nothing to do with anything but it’s cool nonetheless: ImprovEverywhere froze life in the busiest train station in the world for five minutes. Completely cool!
  • Not to belabor a point, but being alone affects
    you.(via)
  • Failure Now an Option.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the link! :) Is co-working in SL weird? There are a bunch of us scattered around North America who may or may not have a physical place to co-work, so, we’re going to try a virtual one. It may ultimately be us watching out avatars fall asleep while we answer email … but it’s a little more embodied than chat and Twitter – so we’ll see how it goes.

    Hey Kate,
    Certainly didn’t mean to imply that you’re weird or to be derogatory about coworking in SL. I don’t get it because, for me, coworking means physically sharing a space with people in order to get out of the social isolation that happens when I work at home alone. But then, I don’t use SL, so for all I know, SL might do the same for you.

    I hope you weren’t offended or anything.

    It’s definitely more embodied than twitter which does nothing for me. At least in SL you can have a pretty island!
