Co-working in the NeST ...

Co-working area at NeST Barnard Castle
A group of 8 homeworkers descended on the NeST Gallery, Digital Hub and Cafe for a Colleagues on Tap Co-working experience on Wednesday 8th June.

Although several of our co-workers had already experienced NeST as an event space or a cafe (and 2 are already members of this co-working space) some hadn't visited before the event.  All enjoyed their inspiring workspace for the day, stimulated by the works of local artists that adourned the walls and of course their new-found colleagues on tap!

Workspace adourned by the work of local artists
The regular 'SpoT chat' session after lunch focused again on Cloud Computing - even more free products and services emerged from this discussion, to top the long list our co-workers came up with at an earlier Colleagues on Tap day at the Tyneside Cinema (which were also shared with colleagues during the session).  CLICK HERE to read 'Free Space ... in the Cloud'.

So, to add to the list of free Cloud-based services ... is a tool that allows you to create dynamic, customised presentations, and
Through  you can manage all of your contacts in one place (from Outlook to Twitter)

A key feature of Colleagues on Tap is the opportunity for co-workers to share knowledge.  We hope our Blog readers benefit from this too!
