Distinction between open spaces workshops and open source projects
May 21, 2011 Leave a comment
Adopting and adapting tools and processes to conduct an open-space workshop is to be expected, as is equivalent borrowing by participants afterwards (see schema below). At first sight then, the only reason that a process-oriented person in an would not be in favor of the open source process of adopting and adapting is if someone privatized the common resources. We could add nuance to this view if we had a more general analysis of the trajectories of open source projects from the ideal to the less-than-ideal outcomes. Suggestions welcome!
