Like Work, But Not

TYPO San Francisco 2013, April 12, 2013, 2:00 pm (Forum Building)

There’s a lot of discussion in the air about the future of work. But what does work looks like *right now*? What does not-work look like?

Rena Tom – serial entrepreneur, friend to creative freelancers and donut enthusiast – will investigate how online and offline relationships intertwine when people are “always on.” She’ll also talk about the coworking movement in general and coworking spaces in particular, and how the design of alternative workspaces can contribute to your health, wealth and happiness.
