Everything cannot be scripted otherwise you miss the surprises.
This initiative landed on my radar a couple of days ago while I was meandering on the web.
In short, Breakout is there to provide 'an Escape from the Office' in a festival of sorts 'that aims to return creative work back to the streets of New York' and running from September 17 to October 16.'
Think of them as a combination, coworking, getting things done and learning sessions.
On Tuesday, September 22, they will provide people reporting on the OneWebDay New York Celebration in Washington Square Park with wireless access (courtesy of NYCwireless) as well as printers in the Breakout tent (from 12 Noon to 2 PM).
You might also be interested in their Future of Mobile Work session on Thursday, September 24 to explore "the future of mobile work practices, discuss the tools (current and future), places and organizational policies to support mobile work. Who are the right workers, and what are the activities that could (or should) take place in collaborative work environments? How can corporate organizations learn from the existing (and growing) community of NYC coworkers?"
Location: 60 Wall Street Atrium (from 12 Noon to 2 PM)
Want to get fueled with fresh ideas to start the day, an Introduction to Ethnography on Friday, September 25th (9 Am to 10:15 AM) on Madison Square South Plaza with students in the Innovation course in the Design and Management department at Parsons New School for Design, "will discuss the importance of understanding people and their behavior as part of the innovation process and conduct on-site ethnographic research."
Will morning commuters cooperate?
Reservation required for each session (except OneWebDay)
