  54. the answers are: smart . the problem is: smart ≠ profit but, is it really a problem? Massimo Carraro and Coworking Project by Cowo® for Festival della Creatività - Firenze, 15.10.2009 - Creative Commons Attribution 3.0

  56. as a space owner if you already pay the operating costs of your everyday activity then coworking is all revenue Massimo Carraro and Coworking Project by Cowo® for Festival della Creatività - Firenze, 15.10.2009 - Creative Commons Attribution 3.0
  57. Cowo’s break even = 0 Massimo Carraro and Coworking Project by Cowo® for Festival della Creatività - Firenze, 15.10.2009 - Creative Commons Attribution 3.0
  58. this way we can be flexible (which is the best possible marketing option) Massimo Carraro and Coworking Project by Cowo® for Festival della Creatività - Firenze, 15.10.2009 - Creative Commons Attribution 3.0
  59. So, if there is no break even point to worry about, and coworking adds to people’s quality of life, why don’t we have endless public coworkings in our cities? libraries? city offices? stations? unused areas? universities? hotel? theatres? airports? underground?
