How did you come up with the idea of dotdotdot.me?
Thomas Schinabeck, at that time a marketing manager at MTV and writing an PhD about the impact of digitalization on music industry, and me, at that time one of the four managing directors of Zentrale Intelligenz Agentur, were really interested in the full potential of digital reading – all those posibilities of reading together, sharing your thoughts, opinion and knowledge directly within a text and taking profit of the knowledge of your friends, your network, your social graph. We were kind of disappointed of the solutions for digital reading out there, so we started to think about the product, we would love to use. A solution for reading and working with all kinds of texts together, like ebooks, any text from the web, your RSS-feeds on any devise. Later Christian Beer, a great iOS developer and Christian Klingler, who is building amazing backend code since years joined us and together we founded the company.
How did the coworking environment at betahaus affect your work? And why did you decide to become a member of it?
I knew Christoph and Tonia (two of the six betahaus founders) from living in the same house before betahaus was founded. Working in an coworking environment was very familiar to me, as at Zentrale Intelligenz Agentur we were working for big clients without having a corporate office using digital solutions to collaborate and that always worked out best for us. So working in betahaus for some time, felt just right. I always liked the social part of coworking, meeting new people, sharing ideas, collaborating on projects.
What is the biggest challenge you find so far?
What are the future goals for the company?
Developing a great product which helps users to experience the full potential of digital reading and building a great platform of readers and authors. We're just started to be in private beta, still very early, but we start to send some invites out now. (If you're interested, please sign up at www.dotdotdot.me).

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:
We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!
We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.
The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node.
The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next.
We want to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!).
We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!
We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
