About

Telecommunities are like schools for adults: local, shared workspaces for people who work remotely. But they are more than that. They are a thought experiment in the way adults live.

Imagine what would happen if, say, 20% of all working adults did not have an office. There would be enough people living in the same area who want to have a social life more akin to that of a social office, or a school, that local telecommunities would be possible.

This website aims to explore the possibilities of telecommunities and spread ideas of solutions to the anti-social problems of work and the Internet – ideas like cultural networks: the next evolution of social networks that eliminates their anti-social anti-intellectual problems, which is related to telecommunities.
