Cross-Continental Collaboration: A New Experiment

I am interested in how we (humans) can become better collaborators with the challenge of time and space between us. Companies are dealing with this more and more, yet even young digital entrepreneurs like JESS3 have begun settling down into offices. How much do we sacrifice with time and space as a factor and how much can we actually gain from it? As resources become more scarce and as we grow into an even more complex global economy, we're already seeing the effects and changes in work habits and expectations.

Creatively, I've been really inspired by crowd-sourced projects.

Life in a Day:

50/50 is not only for a great cause, but it's one of the few projects I've seen out there that has really been able to adapt the kickstarter platform by making it their own.

My friend Julia lives in Seattle. Since my last post, we've been talking about projects that we can do together, so we've decided to start a cross-continent collaboration as a way to explore creativity through digital.

We'll be communicating through the form of a blog, but we'll experiment with the kinds of tasks or assignments each of us will do.

Watch this space!
