Are You a Web Commuter
Do you spend most (or all) of your time working from coffee shops, airports, bookstores, cars, trains or anywhere else that’s not a typical office? There is now a new place for you to hang out. Today I’m super excited to announce the launch of workshifting.com. workshifting.com is a New Marketing Labs project on behalf of Citrix Online (you know, the folks that make GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar). The design was done by our good friends, Eric and Justin Rasmussen of CoffeeHouse Ideas.
workshifting exists to swap stories with others (like me) who make their office in some pretty interesting places when not back at the mother ship. Sure, I’ve got a cubicle-style office like lots of folks (thanks, Herman Miller), but I also shift my work to several dozen other places, like coffeeshops, airports, hotel desks, and pretty much anywhere I can sneak some power (we’ll talk about that a lot).
We hope that you’ll stop by and hang out with us. Over the coming weeks you’ll see more announcements about workshifting. Are you a workshifter who’s interested in being a contributor? Shoot me an email (jlevy [at] newmarketinglabs [dot] com) or fill out the short form over on the Contact page.
Also being launched alongside workshifting.com is a report that Citrix Online put together properly entitled “Worldwide Workplace: The Web Commuting Imperative”. You can download the free report here. It’s really an excellent document with all sort of pretty charts and whatnot for us stat geeks (you know who you are, don’t hide!).
