Why also non Digital Brands will eventually become Platforms It’s been quite a hectic period during Xmas break, and the year started big with a superb workshop session in Barcelona. Indeed I had the chance to run the third workshop about the Platform Design Toolkit, this time again with more than 50 participants. It was a great experience that spurred new ideas and feedbacks I’m going to incorporate soon in the Toolkit. [A picture from our Foxize School Workshop, credits to Albert Canigueral - CC-BY-SA] While the analysis on Platforms still goes on also thanks to the collaboration with other OuiShare team mates, also merging with some spectacular quantitative analysis coming from Javier Creus, I’ve been caught in thoughts about how this overall thinking framework can be beneficial in analysing the tangibles, goods economy. The Componentization and Softwarization of the Economy First of all, let’s just reflect a bit on how the trends we are can already spot in the digital market, will unfold in manufacturing. The Red Queen Effect Like this:

Editorial: A new ‘open library’ concept In striving for new public library concepts we see many fancy ideas presented. One of the most successful results in Denmark is the ‘open library’ concept. As all libraries are ‘open’, ‘open library’ is hardly a very apt term for a concept that allows users to access the library space in principle 24/7 and serve them- selves with loans and return materials. And use the computers, read or maybe even set up a meeting or an event, if the space allows it. In a few years this concept has spread to 80 libraries in Denmark and more are planned. A second cause for the success of this concept is immediate user accept. A third good reason for the success, or even a prerequisite, is that for many years Danish libraries have worked with self-service in loan and return transactions, which means that a majority of users are familiar with selfservice procedures, which by the way are extremely simple. share

Fayetteville Free Library's FabLab (IDEO) Contribution Reinventing the library for the 21st century, this upstate public library will provide a public fabrication lab. This public library in upstate New York will be the first to provide public access to machines and software for making things, like 3d printers and lasercutters. I think its not actually finished yet but apparently the project is in the process of securing funding. The library's goal is to promote and community innovation. In the past only fancy institutions such as universities and corporations had such facilities with prototyping equipment (not often called a fablab, hackerspace, or makerspace). In an age of ebooks, what an exciting proposition about what a vibrant public library can be!

INDTRYK FRA CHICAGO VESTAMAGER BIBLIOTEK I ØJENHØJDE! Open libraries in Denmark Self-service libraries, known as open libraries, are popular. 180 of Denmark’s 450 libraries are now open libraries – and more are on their way. It started at Silkeborg public library in Jutland in 2004. The municipality were to take over the library service in Gjern, a rural municipality with very small local libraries. It would require heavy staff expenses and the municipality had to economize – also in terms of the libraries. But the library’s wish to provide a better offer within the economic framework led to the idea of trying to let the users unlock the libraries themselves. The model The definition of an open library, engendered by the Silkeborg model, is a library department, which apart from the staffed hours, has been extended with more opening hours, where the citizen herself can “unlock the door”. Over a period of several years, the development of library infrastructure in Denmark has moved towards centralization. Dissemination of the model Experiences Continued development

Chicago : New Teen Place opening at Schaumburg Library November 22, 2012|By Elizabeth Owens-Schiele, Special to the Tribune Two students do homework at the new Teen Center at Schaumburg Township District Library. (Schaumburg Township District Library) A high-tech, state-of-the-art Teen Place will open Nov. 24 in the Schaumburg Township District Library. At a cost of $1.2 million, the 6,000-square-foot center at the library, 130 S. "When we moved here 14 years ago, we never had a teen area and we saw a real need for it," said Judy Napier, director of popular services, explaining only 600 square feet on the second floor had previously been dedicated to teen titles. Equipped with "rubber in the walls," Napier said the sound system in the self-enclosed area is "amazing." "We don't want adults to park themselves here," said Napier, citing a high priority for Teen Place planners. "It's a technology and media world," said Vanessa Painter, a librarian at Keller, "and if that's what is their motivation, what a great place to learn."

Ørestad Bibliotek - Modelprogram for folkebiblioteker Introduktion Ørestad Bibliotek er Københavns nyeste bibliotek. I kraft af at være den eneste kulturinstitution i Ørestaden står det nye bibliotek med den udfordring at bygge et kulturtilbud op og give Ørestaden en aktiv kulturel profil. Samspil mellem det virtuelle og det fysiske rum i centrum Biblioteket er nyskabende på flere fronter. DIGITAL GUIDE VISER VEJEn anden vigtig målsætning er at give besøgende i det fysiske bibliotek lettest mulig adgang til information og svar. Folkebibliotek, skolebibliotek og kulturhus i samme rum Biblioteket er disponeret i to åbne planer på henholdsvis 600 m² og 700 m² med hovedvægt på ’underholdning’ i stueetagen og ’læring’ på første sal. I udgangspunktet er der på første sal to møblerede områder, der signalerer henholdsvis: ’kulturelt/diskussionsarrangement’ og ’undervisning’, ligesom der på førstesalen er god plads til at arbejde både individuelt og i grupper. Lokal kulturdynamo med særligt fokus på børn & unge Brugerdialog og branding i ét hug

Un fab lab dans ma bibliothèque Gaëlle Bergougnoux est étudiante à la maîtrise en sciences de l’information à l’EBSI. Elle termine ses études en effectuant un stage sur le sujet des fab labs à la Division des Quartiers culturels avec Marie D Martel. La bibliothèque publique, de par son rôle et sa place dans la société a toujours avancé et accompagné les évolutions de celle-ci. Loin de l’image du sanctuaire de livres (ce qu’elle est aussi d’une certaine façon), la bibliothèque s’est toujours renouvelée, s’adaptant et adoptant les technologies de l’heure. Ainsi CD, DVD, Blu-ray, jeux vidéo sont entrés dans ses collections. Ordinateurs et internet ont aussi leur place dans ces lieux publics d’information. Le concept qui a nourri cette réflexion nous vient de la sociologie urbaine et plus précisément de Ray Oldenburg. Qu’est-ce qu’un fab lab ? Les fab labs (contraction de fabrication laboratory) sont nés en 2001 au MIT, dans un cours du professeur Neil Gershenfeld intitulé « How to make (almost) anything ?
