Huberiai, kurie išėjo į „pensiją“

Galvojau, kaip geriau pavadinti tuos huberius ir jų komandas, kurios išaugo iš mūsų ir paliko Hubą, tam, kad galėtų augti ir plėstis.  Tai žodis pensija atrodo labai atitinka tą būseną, kurią turiu omenyje.

Tai pensininkų iš tiesų per 12 veiklos mėnesių prisikaupė daug, nes, kaip mes ir deklaruojame – „Čia idėjos auga greičiau“.

Taigi, prašom, čia eks huberių (nors jei jau kartą tapai huberiu, tai visam gyvenimui:)) sąrašas:

Coworking is expanding in Lithuania

This week the first coworking center has been opened in Kaunas and it’s the second one in Lithuania already with Hub Vilnius working since the ed of October 2010. Greetings for the local team of coworkers and to Tomas Kažemėkas, who managed to mobilize them. Hub Kaunas landed in the building that is known as the Architects’ house which is located in the heart of the old city  (address: 22, Vilnius street, Kaunas).

There is a common area of about 100 sq. m, with 25 desks, coffee bar, library and lounge area. In addition they have 55 sq. m meeting room that can host up to 50 people and movie making room of 26 sq. m.  Coworkers from both hubs can use them depending upon need.

Social Innovation changes face of the cities

I wanted to share with you observations by David Barrie. He reviews examples of social innovation that changes the face of the city. There are similar things in Lithuania worth mentioning as well.

For example arts and culture ( Street Music Day ) come out into the public, the street becomes part of life. Social relations are changing: strangers meet to share emotions and activities together (bubbler ), some second hand stuff ( fleamarket at teachers’ house), their skills and experience ( Eco Wave at Gedimino 9), ideas ( Pecha Kucha ) or just simply talk to each other. Artists and other active people are changing their communities inside Vilnius as well: starting in Uzupis adn ending with Newtown . Coworking in our Hub is part of this movement as well. And that’s just the beginning:).
