Abstract [en]

This paper presents an ongoing ethnographic study of the Hoffice Network in Stockholm, Sweden. The concept Hoffice (Home + Office) relates to the emerging phenomenon of people opening up their homes as shared workplaces, and to the related organizational framework enabling the creation of co-working spaces. We focus on sharing and caring as two overarching values emerging from our preliminary data analysis. In doing so, we discuss three main themes characterizing the socio-cultural practices around the Hoffice, namely: a concern for other people, a concern for implicit norms and cultural aspects inherent in the Hoffice structure, and the role of the facilitators and organizers in making Hoffice a sustainable, self-organizing practice. These themes allow us to develop an initial understanding of the notion of nomadic culture and to connect it to a view of the collaborative economy that values sense of community, mutual trust, support and continuity over time.
