La Rentrée

View from Les Rencontres de Lure (Lurs, France)

Welcome back! OSP is about to start a busy year, but before we begin... here a fresh take on the application of Open Source methodologies in design:

"An open source methodology could aid us in moving in this direction for it provides a contemporary justification
for a publicly owned intellectual commons sustained by collaborative effort. The challenge would be to design the appropriate technologies for interface with the network. But if we merely transfer the open source model into the discipline of design, without first connecting it to a physical sense of place, we may not take advantage of the opportunities being offered to us".
