New ways to work: Sococo and Gigwalk

To see just how work is changing thanks to technology you have to look no further than these two companies:

1. Sococo gives you a virtual office, where you have an office space on screen. You have to get a demo of this. Video.
2. Gigwalk lets you work (or hire people to do tasks) on your smart phone. I’m using this to hire people to take pictures of vacation homes in Los Angeles, so I don’t waste money on a badly-located home. Video.

These both are a good example of why I like video. It’s hard to explain these concepts in text, but in video you’ll get a much better idea of how work is changing. Enjoy!

  1. Sococo is cool and it works. I’ve tested it in a real situation and really improves the perception of distance.

  2. Ha!  While watching the Sococo vid on youtube, a question came to me, so I paused and wrote it down. That was /just/ before 9:00 … and you proceeded to ask almost exactly my question!  I can see huge value in this.
