Monterey Co-Working?

Hi everyone-

I'm new to co-working and in the process of trying to find an office
(any office!) to work out of in the Monterey Bay area. I've had no
success after weeks of searching. Posted ads with no replies.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Leo, I’ve seen discussions in the past about coworking in Monterrey, but nothing I know of yet. If you are looking for a private office; we have a small meeting room in Monterrey available for rent by the hour or by the day on LiquidSpace.com. Just type in the location you need a workspace in and search. You can check availability and book directly through that venues LiquidSpace calendar.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for; we’re adding more workspaces every week, so check back often to find new spaces.

Best,

Eric Zellhart

Hey there Leo,

There is a NextSpace and Cruzioworks that come up on Deskwanted in
Santa Cruz. Not sure if that is too far from you.

Good luck with the search, would love to here where you end up.

All the best,

Julianne

Dear coworking folks,

Finally, the much-talked-about Coworking Manual written by me and designed by my colleagues Aaajiao and Cozi Ge is out on the app store today!

Now you can download it free of charge from iTune and app store.

http://xindanwei.com/lang/en/co-working-manual/

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/co-working-manual/id502879582?ls=1&mt=8

This Coworking Manual discusses the necessity and advantages of coworking communities, our business model, key points of building the space, experience in business planning, community management and brand management. The purpose of launching this manual is to share experience and models, thus to promote the “coworking community” working model and change the way people work. To achieve this vision, it is not enough to rely on us alone. We hope more communities in China and in the world will rise up by reading and contributing to this Coworking Manual, just as what we did by adapting the publication Rigour : How to create world-changing spaces created by the Center for Social Innovation (CSI)in Toronto. Thank you CSI! http://socialinnovation.ca/sssi

“Sharing” and ”collabrating” are the key values promoted within our community, as we believe the value of any knowledge cannot last and old knowledge can only generate new knowledge through the process of sharing, and that there is no receiving without giving.

Hope this publication is useful to you, and we are looking forward to hearing from you!

p.s. sorry for making so many typing mistakes in the first version(I did the final spelling and grammar check but it turned out to be the old version for no reason), even the title was wrong(yes folks I know it should be coworking, not co-working!!!).

regards, Liu Yan

Hi Leonid-

If you are able to make it to the North Bay we would love to have you
stop by NextSpace and work a day with us. We have delicious Verve
coffee and our first day is free. Cruzioworks and The Satellite in
Felton and Scotts Valley also sell day passes (not sure if they offer
a free day). As of right now there are not any coworking spaces in
Monterey, though you could probably find some interested folks who
would like to hold a jelly with you. Mary Lynch is a coworking fan,
follow her on Twitter @marilynch and hit her up to see if she knows of
any people working together. Good luck!

Hi Leonid,

Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time finding a good place to work. As Iris says, if you can make it up to Santa Cruz, there are lots of great options. We do offer free trial days at Cruzioworks, and we have private offices available to rent full-time, by the day or by the week. We're an ISP too and all our workspace are connected directly to fiber -- 100 Mbps connectivity comes included.

Let me know if you'd like to stop by for a tour.

Thanks,
James
Cruzio

Liu Yan,

It was great to meet you at the European Coworking conference in Berlin last year, and congrats to you and your collaborators on getting this out the door and in the store.

I found it impressive to read a book that translates itself with the click of a button, full of documentation of your fresh approaches and adaptation of methods in a new platform, a reminder to all of us that if we rely only on Western culture for ideas, principles, and operating methods, we will miss many opportunities and innovations and inspirations.

I’ve got the same question as Rachel. Particularly since you reference in the introduction opening it up under a Creative Commons (CC) license, yet you don’t specify which form/version of CC license, and the text surrounding it seems to contradict the basic CC principles/advantages [emphasis mine]:

Locking away this knowledge is against our principles: we believe nowadays the value of any knowledge can not last and old knowledge can only generate new knowledge through the process of sharing. Hence, we are sharing our knowledge and include this Guide in the “Creative Commons License” system. We demand that our readers comply with the “Creative Commons License” [text that follows appears to be obscured] have to reserve our copyright and inform us of your use, or which part you wish to modify or edit. We hope this approach will encourage more people to share their knowledge too.

and a little further on:

We shall initially publish the Guide in pdf and iApps form but later on we may make amendments or supplements to the Guide.

Most CC licenses that allow re-use, for either commercial or noncommercial purposes, while requiring attribution (unless you explicitly choose not to), have as a key element the right for anyone to modify or, should you choose, edit and republish “derivative works” without informing you or asking for further permission. This is one of the key elements that CC adds - the ability for others to build on and amplify and further distribute your work without waiting for you to give permission or risking further investment on the chance that you will not grant permission or not do so in a timely fashion.

I suspect that some nuance of your intention may have been lost in translation here; your guidance as to how people can best take your great work and build on it and distribute it further would be most helpful.

As you say in the Beyond Space section:

We proposed a “new style of work” slogan and set about trying to change the working environment in Shanghai, China and even the whole world that is currently closed, isolated and excessively controls intellectual property rights.

I believe we are all in the process of finding a new balance in this arena, between control and engagement, invitation and relationship.

There is one strong clue to what the appropriate license would be: Your text credits “How to create to change the world space” from the Centre for Social Innovation in Canada – which seems to be Rigour: How to Create World-Changing Spaces. That item includes a CC license (CC-BY SA 2.5) (interesting, the first time I’ve seen the Canadian version) that explicitly allows sharing and remixing (adaptation), but requires attribution and sharing-alike, which means that your license needs to be “similar” - at least as permissive as that, for others to share – and also you need to “make clear” the license in your own work.

Of course, to do so in a way that builds community and maintains a common base of text requires a level of coordination and project-management not unlike that an open-source software project would entail, and I totally understand if such a system is not yet up and running upon the initial release of your project - but at least having the PDF available would make it possible for others to start the process of building on your great work.

I’m working on preparing for next month’s Austin Global Coworking Unconference a coworking-related document to showcase a new iPad-native app debuting at SXSWi, and the material in the guide would complement that well, yet requiring users to go to the App store and download an iPhone-format book would miss the opportunity of integration and taking advantage of the key features of the new format.

I’m particularly sensitive to the challenges and effects of choices in this area right now because in some ways the Creative Commons license, by making it possible for others to build on one anothers’ work without conversation, can create the opposite effect of what we’re doing in our coworking spaces: building community, making it easy to talk with one another and build a relational (rather than transactional) economy.

One group I’m working with has created a tool that I think would be enormously valuable to coworking spaces, and licensed it under Creative Commons in a form that allows commercial re-use, yet the creators have chosen not to make it easy to replicate their formatting without active cooperation/collaboration, out of concern that their investment in printing will be undercut by someone making an exact replica, which seems unlikely for a niche product.

It feels like the most important and hardest part of our work in this area is to help creators have the confidence to fully embrace the potential of these new modes of sharing, to get it that they can earn more social capital and business by giving away what they consider key assets, by removing barriers rather than creating them. To help members of our spaces “get it” that the risk of someone sharing a coworking space ripping off your work is nowhere near as great as the risk that you miss the connection to someone who will provide the key piece that you need.

There definitely is a trade-off, a tension between different approaches to sharing that are emerging as we rewrite the old rules and learn from each others’ experiences. This every evening I’ll be going to the HUB SoMA coworking space in San Francisco for the first in a series of “Collaborative Chats” about Building Community in The Sharing Economy and the (I think misnamed or mis-focussed) Collaborative Consumption movement – as we experience in our spaces, the real power is in collaborative co-creation.

Dear Raines,

Thank you so much for the thorough advice, I will check up the creative commons license in China mainland and make sure it is included in the next version. Basically we want to respect the author’s right of “Rigour: how to change a world-changing spaces”, and to keep this publication under the same license as requested by its authors.

In regards to the translation, it has been truly a headache. The first intention to write this Coworking Manual (Manual, not guide) is to summarize and share our work with thousands of people in China who have been supporting us or even want to become part of us. So naturally I wrote it in Chinese, right before our app development started, our sponsor of the app development - a furniture company called Haworth suggested that we should translate it into English to maximize the impact and they are willing to sponsor the translation cost. So without a second thought, I agreed. But as you have imagined, the translation turned out to be quite imperfect, I ended up spending a lot of time editing it to correct the simple words like coworking, creative commons etc. The time was limited and I rushed to send out a version to our app developer, which appeared, not the final version…

I agreed with you about the format of this documentation. My initial idea was in app and PDF format online. But later on I had some argument with my partner about leaving it online in PDF format. I think I still need to push him to get this pdf done in the next version.

It was great meeting you too in Berlin last year, wish you all the success with the preparation of Austin Global Coworking Unconference.

cheers, Liu Yan

One group I’m working with has created a tool that I think would be enormously valuable to coworking spaces, and licensed it under Creative Commons in a form that allows commercial re-use, yet the creators have chosen not to make it easy to replicate their formatting without active cooperation/collaboration, out of concern that their investment in printing will be undercut by someone making an exact replica, which seems unlikely for a niche product.

It feels like the most important and hardest part of our work in this area is to help creators have the confidence to fully embrace the potential of these new modes of sharing, to get it that they can earn more social capital and business by giving away what they consider key assets, by removing barriers rather than creating them. To help members of our spaces “get it” that the risk of someone sharing a coworking space ripping off your work is nowhere near as great as the risk that you miss the connection to someone who will provide the key piece that you need.

There definitely is a trade-off, a tension between different approaches to sharing that are emerging as we rewrite the old rules and learn from each others’ experiences. This every evening I’ll be going to the HUB SoMA coworking space in San Francisco for the first in a series of “Collaborative Chats” about Building Community in The Sharing Economy and the (I think misnamed or mis-focussed) Collaborative Consumption movement – as we experience in our spaces, the real power is in collaborative co-creation.

Dear Raines,

Thank you so much for the thorough advice, I will check up the creative commons license in China mainland and make sure it is included in the next version. Basically we want to respect the author’s right of “Rigour: how to change a world-changing spaces”, and to keep this publication under the same license as requested by its authors.

In regards to the translation, it has been truly a headache. The first intention to write this Coworking Manual (Manual, not guide) is to summarize and share our work with thousands of people in China who have been supporting us or even want to become part of us. So naturally I wrote it in Chinese, right before our app development started, our sponsor of the app development - a furniture company called Haworth suggested that we should translate it into English to maximize the impact and they are willing to sponsor the translation cost. So without a second thought, I agreed. But as you have imagined, the translation turned out to be quite imperfect, I ended up spending a lot of time editing it to correct the simple words like coworking, creative commons etc. The time was limited and I rushed to send out a version to our app developer, which appeared, not the final version…

I agreed with you about the format of this documentation. My initial idea was in app and PDF format online. But later on I had some argument with my partner about leaving it online in PDF format. I think I still need to push him to get this pdf done in the next version.

It was great meeting you too in Berlin last year, wish you all the success with the preparation of Austin Global Coworking Unconference.

cheers, Liu Yan

Liu Yan,

It was great to meet you at the European Coworking conference in Berlin last year, and congrats to you and your collaborators on getting this out the door and in the store.

I found it impressive to read a book that translates itself with the click of a button, full of documentation of your fresh approaches and adaptation of methods in a new platform, a reminder to all of us that if we rely only on Western culture for ideas, principles, and operating methods, we will miss many opportunities and innovations and inspirations.

I’ve got the same question as Rachel. Particularly since you reference in the introduction opening it up under a Creative Commons (CC) license, yet you don’t specify which form/version of CC license, and the text surrounding it seems to contradict the basic CC principles/advantages [emphasis mine]:

Locking away this knowledge is against our principles: we believe nowadays the value of any knowledge can not last and old knowledge can only generate new knowledge through the process of sharing. Hence, we are sharing our knowledge and include this Guide in the “Creative Commons License” system. We demand that our readers comply with the “Creative Commons License” [text that follows appears to be obscured] have to reserve our copyright and inform us of your use, or which part you wish to modify or edit. We hope this approach will encourage more people to share their knowledge too.

and a little further on:

We shall initially publish the Guide in pdf and iApps form but later on we may make amendments or supplements to the Guide.

Most CC licenses that allow re-use, for either commercial or noncommercial purposes, while requiring attribution (unless you explicitly choose not to), have as a key element the right for anyone to modify or, should you choose, edit and republish “derivative works” without informing you or asking for further permission. This is one of the key elements that CC adds - the ability for others to build on and amplify and further distribute your work without waiting for you to give permission or risking further investment on the chance that you will not grant permission or not do so in a timely fashion.

I suspect that some nuance of your intention may have been lost in translation here; your guidance as to how people can best take your great work and build on it and distribute it further would be most helpful.

As you say in the Beyond Space section:

We proposed a “new style of work” slogan and set about trying to change the working environment in Shanghai, China and even the whole world that is currently closed, isolated and excessively controls intellectual property rights.

I believe we are all in the process of finding a new balance in this arena, between control and engagement, invitation and relationship.

There is one strong clue to what the appropriate license would be: Your text credits “How to create to change the world space” from the Centre for Social Innovation in Canada – which seems to be Rigour: How to Create World-Changing Spaces. That item includes a CC license (CC-BY SA 2.5) (interesting, the first time I’ve seen the Canadian version) that explicitly allows sharing and remixing (adaptation), but requires attribution and sharing-alike, which means that your license needs to be “similar” - at least as permissive as that, for others to share – and also you need to “make clear” the license in your own work.

Of course, to do so in a way that builds community and maintains a common base of text requires a level of coordination and project-management not unlike that an open-source software project would entail, and I totally understand if such a system is not yet up and running upon the initial release of your project - but at least having the PDF available would make it possible for others to start the process of building on your great work.

Dear coworking folks,

Finally, the much-talked-about Coworking Manual written by me and designed by my colleagues Aaajiao and Cozi Ge is out on the app store today!

Now you can download it free of charge from iTune and app store.

http://xindanwei.com/lang/en/co-working-manual/

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/co-working-manual/id502879582?ls=1&mt=8

This Coworking Manual discusses the necessity and advantages of coworking communities, our business model, key points of building the space, experience in business planning, community management and brand management. The purpose of launching this manual is to share experience and models, thus to promote the “coworking community” working model and change the way people work. To achieve this vision, it is not enough to rely on us alone. We hope more communities in China and in the world will rise up by reading and contributing to this Coworking Manual, just as what we did by adapting the publication Rigour : How to create world-changing spaces created by the Center for Social Innovation (CSI)in Toronto. Thank you CSI! http://socialinnovation.ca/sssi

“Sharing” and ”collabrating” are the key values promoted within our community, as we believe the value of any knowledge cannot last and old knowledge can only generate new knowledge through the process of sharing, and that there is no receiving without giving.

Hope this publication is useful to you, and we are looking forward to hearing from you!

p.s. sorry for making so many typing mistakes in the first version(I did the final spelling and grammar check but it turned out to be the old version for no reason), even the title was wrong(yes folks I know it should be coworking, not co-working!!!).

Chinese New Years we combined SZteam coworking with ChaiHuo
hackerspace - making the community of Chinese and foreigners more
bonded

Hi michael,

Great to know that you are pushing everything forward in shenzhen in good pace! To be honest with you, we don't really have any resources to develop another android apps, right now i am trying my best to pull up resource to make sure the updating of the current apps could take place from time to time.

However,I am very open to anyone in china and beyond who are interested to edit this coworking manual together and co-develop it into other formats! This was actually how i wish how this publication envolves: turn it into coworking manual wikipedia !

Dear coworking folks,

Finally, the much-talked-about Coworking Manual written by me and
designed by my colleagues Aaajiao and Cozi Ge is out on the app store
today!
Now you can download it free of charge from iTune and app store.
http://xindanwei.com/lang/en/co-working-manual/
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/co-working-manual/id502879582?ls=1&mt=8

This Coworking Manual discusses the necessity and advantages of coworking
communities, our business model, key points of building the space,
experience in business planning, community management and brand management.
The purpose of launching this manual is to share experience and models,
thus to promote the "coworking community" working model and change the way
people work. To achieve this vision, it is not enough to rely on us alone.
We hope more communities in China and in the world will rise up by reading
and contributing to this Coworking Manual, just as what we did by adapting
the publication Rigour : How to create world-changing spaces created by the
Center for Social Innovation (CSI)in Toronto. Thank you CSI!

"Sharing" and "collabrating" are the key values promoted within our
community, as we believe the value of any knowledge cannot last and old
knowledge can only generate new knowledge through the process of sharing,
and that there is no receiving without giving.

Hope this publication is useful to you, and we are looking forward to
hearing from you!

p.s. sorry for making so many typing mistakes in the first version(I did
the final spelling and grammar check but it turned out to be the old
version for no reason), even the title was wrong(yes folks I know it should
be coworking, not co-working!!!).

regards, Liu Yan

Hi michael,

Great to know that you are pushing everything forward in shenzhen in good pace! To be honest with you, we don't really have any resources to develop another android apps, right now i am trying my best to pull up resource to make sure the updating of the current apps could take place from time to time.

However,I am very open to anyone in china and beyond who are interested to edit this coworking manual together and co-develop it into other formats! This was actually how i wish how this publication envolves: turn it into coworking manual wikipedia !

Monterey Coworking is about to happen at Open Ground Studios in Seaside. If you are interested in getting in on the ground floor, feel free to shoot me an email. Our coworking artist studio is the base of Open Ground Studios, but we are gearing up to open an inspiring coworking space in our gallery area. Our soft opening is hopefully Dec. 5, 2014.
opengroundstudios.com (we haven’t publicized it yet on our site- but this gives you an idea of who we are.)
