The idea of sharing has become an online phenomenon that connects people in ways that are mutually beneficial; the latest website being Swedish-based Hoffice. Hoffice allows homeowners to share their living areas as temporary coworking spaces. Especially great for remote workers and freelancers who don't often have in-person contact with anyone, Hoffice bridges the gap of professionalism and companionship.
Hoffice also brings structure to workdays. Based on research suggesting people can't concentrate for more than 40 minutes at a time, Hoffice encourages everyone to work in 45-minute shifts, taking a break after an alarm sounds. Striking the perfect balance between community and productivity, Hoffice is now consulting with organizations that want to experiment with new ways to work. Surprisingly, Hoffice participants open their home to others for free.
