Solid recommendations and interesting ideas about how the web changes how we work and connect with people. 24. Januar 2008
Von Dawn M. Foster - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I just finished Connect! A Guide to a New Way of Working by Anne Zelenka. Connect is all about web workers, those people who spend all or part of their time working remotely over the web either as telecommuters, freelancers, or some other online working arrangement. I spent about 6 months working remotely, and I could have used a book like this. Based on what I learned from my experience, this book was right on target and offers great advice to people interested in working over the web with good coverage of both the good and the bad aspects. While the flexibility was great for me, you can go a little stir crazy, and Anne has a lot of ideas to help minimize the issues inherent in working from home.

In addition to the basic information about web working, some of the related ideas in the book really helped define some of what I have been noticing over the past couple years that seem to he changing the way people work. Anne makes a great distinction between knowledge work and web work. With knowledge work, the focus has been on the corporation, proprietary technologies, desktop tools, and knowledge, but in contrast, web work is focused on individuals, open technologies, web tools, and relationships. When I was at Intel, the focus was more on knowledge work, but I am noticing that at my current employer, the focus is on web work as Anne defines it with collaboration, openness, and relationships being of utmost importance. As an community person, I am definitely more suited to the web work model.

Busy vs. bursty is also a common theme throughout the book. Busy work is based on work hours, email, company relationships, inflexible long-term planning, and web surfing as a time waster, while bursty work is about getting the job done regardless of hours worked, collaboration tools instead of email, relationships that are broader than just your company, agile planning, and web surfing as fuel for ideas. This isn't to say that you can replace all of the busy work with bursty work; you still need some amount of busy work to get through the tedious, but necessary tasks. However, bursty work also has a place, and again it is more suited to my personal style of working.

I will admit to skipping over a couple of sections, like technology recommendations for home work systems, since I have an in depth knowledge of some of these topics based on my recent experiences as a web worker. Even if you aren't a telecommuter or freelancer working mostly over the web, I still recommend the book and Web Worker Daily, the companion web site. It has a lot of interesting ideas for how work is changing as we move more and more of our lives online.

Helpful, practical, balanced, and exciting - a new way of viewing work 12. Januar 2008
Von Anne Gentle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book articulates concepts and beliefs that I didn't even know that I held or believed - but there they are on paper. I have instinctively been employing a connected web worker approach in many of my professional and personal pursuits and Anne Zelenka has nailed the joy of balancing work and home life while offering encouragement for others to find their own way.

The book is clear, well-written, and includes tables and other reference materials that let you dive in deeper. It doesn't sugarcoat the experience of working at home and offers suggestions for starting from scratch or blending an approach that fits you.

Plus, this book offers terminology for the web worker (such as the Tidy Web) to make it easier for us to communicate with others about the priorities and selections you can make when connecting with others online. There's a great chapter on different alternative career paths (kaleidoscope, organic, slash, hero's journey) that was very informative as well.

It's hard to describe the energy I get from my current work/life balancing act to many of my friends and family, so I appreciate well-written pieces. I want to buy this book for all my coworkers and managers and their managers so they can understand that a connected, bursty lifestyle can work for many of us.

Empowering and Comprehensible 17. Juli 2008
Von Hallenda Slattery - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book impacted my view of the internet in an empowering way. It caused me to reevaluate my approach to both work and family, and how to blend (even sometimes separate) those worlds in a more smooth and efficient manner. I learned many tips and tricks that have assisted me in accomplishing goals and meeting deadlines. This book also prompted me to consider going out on my own as a freelancer. I don't know if I would have given much thought to such a venture without the discussions and concepts the author brought forth. What I like best about the author's writing is that it is comprehensible for a relatively low techie, like me, to understand.

Longer than necessary... 6. Mai 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While the book does offer some helpful insights and recommendations for working and connecting via the web much of the information could have been communicated in a more condensed manner. Many topics were repeated over and again with little information added. Over all it was a good book for an introduction to web working but the author makes a lot of assumptions about how people (other than herself) accomplish their work. It's worth reading, unless you have something else to tackle first...

Meer wijsheid dan je op eerste oog doorhebt 14. März 2008
Von Henk-Jan van der Klis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Met Judi Sohn presenteert Web Worker Daily schrijfster Anne Truitt Zelenka in Connect! A Guide to a new way of working vele tips, verwijzingen en inspiratie voor de de web werker. De web werker wordt gepositioneerd als vervolg in de lijn van productiewerker uit de Industriële Revolutie, de kenniswerker (gepropageerd door Peter Drucker sinds de jaren '50 van de vorige eeuw). Mensen die hun plek zoeken in de uitdagende wereld van hetzij een gecombineerd leven van kantoorwerker en een rijk (sociaal) online leven, de freelancer die niet om het web heenkan, de projectleider die mensen verbindt op verschillende locaties en in verschillende tijdzones. Connect! laat je - voor zover je ze nog niet kent - kennismaken met handige hulpmiddelen als instant messaging, (micro)blogging, zoekmachines en online projectmanagement. Het haalt de krenten uit de pap voor wat betreft werkplek, keuze van telefoon, computer en online diensten. Het biedt handige aanwijzingen om dingen gedaan te krijgen, efficiënt met de stroom e-mails, RSS-feeds en andere vragen/verstoringen/afleidingen om te gaan. Het schept helderheid in mogelijke werkvormen om van hobby werk te maken en andersom, betrekt zaken als persoonlijke financiën, het belang van 'echte' relaties, oog voor de gevaren van burnout, overspanning en frustratie. Connect! leest lekker weg, maar bevat meer wijsheid dan je op eerste oog doorhebt.
