Mitch Kapor's Weblog: Does the open source model apply beyond so January 04, 2005 Does the open source model apply beyond software? Does the open source model apply beyond software? I'll go out on a limb. Part of me doesn't want to say this, even though I believe it, because too many times I've regretted my public stands saying that revolutionary change via technology (the PC, the Internet) was at hand. A final aside - I care about these matters because I like and appreciate the good side of business so much. Business, writ large, is the archetypal form around which our world is organized. To say, then, that open source represents a fundamentally new and different way to organize economic activity which challenges the dominant paradigm, is not a modest claim. Many of the best efforts to characterize what is fundamental about open source partially miss the mark.

A Daily Dose of Architecture Workforce: A Better Place to Work edited by Aurora Fernádez Per, Javier Mozas a+t, 2014 Paperback, 160 pages [All images courtesy of a+t] Recently I picked up a couple used books that are all about work: Nikil Saval's Cubed: The Secret History of the Workplace, published last spring, and Studs Terkel's 1972 classic Working. These two books, combined with a+t's first installment in its Workforce Series, paint a picture of how work and the workplace itself has changed over the last century or so. Being that this is a blog about contemporary architecture, I'm therefore focusing on a+t's collection of recent workplace designs, but I think the book is a bit more meaningful in my mind thanks to reading parts of these other books simultaneously. Like other a+t books, the meat of the issue is the projects, in this case 25 office spaces designed by 18 firms.

It's nothing less than the migration from individual mind to collective intelligence. I call it "here comes everybody", and it represents, for good or for bad, a fundamental change in our notion of who we are. Lately, there's been a lot of news concerning the Wikipedia and other user-generated websites such as Myspace, Flickr, and others. For example, in today's Wall Street Journal "portals" column, Lee Gomes ("Why Getting the User To Create Web Content Isn't Always Progress", June 7, 2006, p B1) writes: "Mash-ups", which allow active (vs. "The mass.
