What do you call your coworking community members?

Hiya!

Jeska from Coffee & Power here, I've been lurking for a bit, first
(hopefully not-too-controversial!) post.

I've got a question about words/terms. I've determined that it's
"coworking" (not co-working) but I can't seem to find an agreed-upon
term to describe those who work alongside me within a coworking
spaces.

Is there an agreed upon term within the larger coworking community?
What do you use? Coworkers? (seems the best, but could be
confusing...) Collaborators? Neighbors?

Thanks for help!

Cheers,
Jeska

I don’t think that I’ve seen enough examples to determine a pattern, other than “members”. All of those terms work, though, if that’s what suits the folks in each space, but “members” is consistent no matter what the structure of the space is.

Hi Everyone!

In Morgantown, We started West Virginia’s first Coworking space in November 2011.

Our space is called “SBASECAMP” It stands for small business base camp. LOL

It is pronounced “Space - camp” And we refer to all of our members as “Campers.”

Here is a link to out Facebook page and our into video.

Agreed with Rachel. A lot of communities have clever names based on the name of the larger community. We’ve got indies, Office Nomads has Nomads, etc.

There’s also the factor of perspective: individuals are members, but to each other, could be coworkers.

We don’t call our members “comrades”, but it does come up from outsiders once in a while who think they are being clever.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone.

It totally makes sense to have the community within one physical space
or network name themselves (and the term "members" seems easiest for
referring to them until then). I love the idea of being playful with
the name amongst the members (comrades is awesome btw).

Thinking more broadly, and I know we as humans tend to resist names,
so there might not be agreed upon term. This is a coworking email list
for the "global community of people dedicated to the values of
Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability"
-- Does that make us all "members" of the coworking community or would
we call ourselves "Coworkers" or "Mobile Workers"? I think what I was
trying to get at in my original question was whether or not there had
been a larger conversations among this community of coworking
aficionados for agreed upon terms to refer to ourselves?

Thanks again,
Jeska

I have a similar pun, only it's in Dutch.

The space is called Kamer52

Kamer is dutch for chamber, room. But it is also what the Parliament
is called, the "Eerste Kamer" and "Tweede Kamer". (First and Second
Chamber, roughly cognate to the Senate and House of Reps) Because of
this, Senators and Reps are called "Kamerleden"or (get ready for it)
Chamber members.

I do make some use of this reference on my blog in referring to my
members as "Kamerleden".

In addition,

Raad is dutch for advice.

Kamer Raad is then advice from the "Kamer", either the one in the
Hague or the one in Oosterhout. :slight_smile:

But Kameraad is also indeed comrade, and so my Twitter/Skype handle is
Kameraad52.

It's funny. In dutch. Really.

Oh, please, I will agreee to referring to ourselves as the sneetches
if necessary but please, please please not Mobile Workers. I have
finally begun making some tiny bit of headway in the idea that
coworking also is for somebody other than the folks who are constantly
on the road. Argh.

But otherwise, not that I am aware of.

I *have* been threatening today (on Titter) to do a T shirt campaign
with "Cow Orking Oosterhout" with a Dutch cow nose with one of those
silly hats on top, and a "Cow Orking Milan" with, I dunno, a Milanese
cow nose, and so on down the line.

But I think it's just a joke. Unless you see such a t shirt, it was
just a joke.

It totally makes sense to have the community within one physical space

referring to them until then). I love the idea of being playful with
the name amongst the members (comrades is awesome btw).

Thinking more broadly, and I know we as humans tend to resist names,
so there might not be agreed upon term. This is a coworking email list
for the "global community of people dedicated to the values of
Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability"
-- Does that make us all "members" of the coworking community or would
we call ourselves "Coworkers" or "Mobile Workers"? I think what I was

Happy. I think calling ourselves happy sums it up pretty well.

They’re closing the boarding doors on my flight to Austin for GCUC. I expect I’ll be meeting many other happy people there.
See you soon.

No way, Joel, we have to make you one with a lot of hats, that says
"Cow Orking Pella".

Orking for photographers is the practice of shoving your nose in the
camera lens so it goes all fish-eye.

I really do feel a t shirt coming on, give me till tomorrow. :slight_smile:

Oh, please, I will agreee to referring to ourselves as the sneetches

finally begun making some tiny bit of headway in the idea that
coworking also is for somebody other than the folks who are constantly
on the road. Argh.

But otherwise, not that I am aware of.

I *have* been threatening today (on Titter) to do a T shirt campaign
with "Cow Orking Oosterhout" with a Dutch cow nose with one of those
silly hats on top, and a "Cow Orking Milan" with, I dunno, a Milanese
cow nose, and so on down the line.

But I think it's just a joke. Unless you see such a t shirt, it was
just a joke.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone.

It totally makes sense to have the community within one physical space

or network name themselves (and the term "members" seems easiest for

referring to them until then). I love the idea of being playful with

the name amongst the members (comrades is awesome btw).

Thinking more broadly, and I know we as humans tend to resist names,

so there might not be agreed upon term. This is a coworking email list

for the "global community of people dedicated to the values of

Collaboration, Openness, Community, Accessibility, and Sustainability"

-- Does that make us all "members" of the coworking community or would

we call ourselves "Coworkers" or "Mobile Workers"? I think what I was

trying to get at in my original question was whether or not there had

been a larger conversations among this community of coworking

aficionados for agreed upon terms to refer to ourselves?

Thanks again,

Jeska

Agreed with Rachel. A lot of communities have clever names based on the

name of the larger community. We've got indies, Office Nomads has Nomads,

etc.

There's also the factor of perspective: individuals are members, but to

each other, could be coworkers.

I don't think that I've seen enough examples to determine a pattern,

other than "members". All of those terms work, though, if that's what suits

the folks in each space, but "members" is consistent no matter what the

structure of the space is.

Hiya!

Jeska from Coffee & Power here, I've been lurking for a bit, first

(hopefully not-too-controversial!) post.

I've got a question about words/terms. I've determined that it's

"coworking" (not co-working) but I can't seem to find an agreed-upon

term to describe those who work alongside me within a coworking

spaces.

Is there an agreed upon term within the larger coworking community?

What do you use? Coworkers? (seems the best, but could be

confusing...) Collaborators? Neighbors?

Thanks for help!

Cheers,

Jeska
