Become part of the new way of working – social freelancing. Find your network and friends.

Here is how the NYT describes this movement.

“High-intensity” telecommuters at home more than three days a week and fulltime freelancers risk feeling alienated, said Ravi S. Gajendran, an author of the study who is now an assistant professor of business at the University of Illinois. “The need to feel socially connected is a fundamental human need,” Dr. Gajendran said.

A Google search on “freelance lonely,” for example, yielded 3.6 million results. For many, the “electronic cottage” has become an “electronic tiger cage,” said Paul Saffo, the Silicon Valley technology forecaster.

“We went through our work-from-home-in-your-bunny-slippers phase and discovered it was lonely,” Mr. Saffo said.

“People aren’t going back to the office for the office,” Mr. Hillman said. “They’re going back to the office to be around people again.”

The QSC was one of the first co working sites to open anywhere back in May 2005! We are a mixed community of programmers, artists, writers, foodies, painters, farmers, therapists and business and financial consultants. You will find a pal and you will find help and ideas.

Try us. What have you to lose?
