Are You a Web Commuter

Do you spend most (or all) of your time working from coffee shops, airports, bookstores, cars, trains or anywhere elseworkshifting 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.

As Chris Brogan explains in the introductory post:

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.

passportAlso 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!).

You can also join the workshifting crew over on Twitter: @workshifting

    I love the idea of work shifting… If only my job allowed for it.

    Love the term WorkShifting. My two cents are, though, that it's not just about space.

    Work iteslf is shifting too… how and why we do what we do. And what we do it with. With the rise of the creative class, they all feed in to each other…

    Hope this place will be able to speak to all those ideas!

    Saw the link through an @chrisbrogan tweet. This looks like it will be a great portal for advertisement of products that fit the “workshifting” lifestyle. You guys should brand this as a culture and start putting on products. “WorkShifter”,. wish I could live it. Good Read

    OK, so I clicked over to the site since you implied it “exists to swap stories,” but the site seems to be set more for reading stories from other people…and the “swapping” is a fancy way of saying commenting on such blog posts?

    I figured it would be a collaborative site, a la Facebook groups to be simplistic, but no?
