Yesterday I was reading this page I found on twitter and these two phrases caught my attention:
«Under an open source system, the flaws and imperfections in every product can be observed, tracked, and fixed, much like the Japanese philosophy of "continuous improvement" known as kaizen, which is applied to every aspect of a process. By following these principles, we believe that the open hardware movement is poised to fundamentally change the global product economy.»
The power of the «openness» allows us (all of us in some degree) to collaborate in the design process. As people of Opening design propose, the possibilities that "new» technologies offer must compel us to rethink the whole design and building processes. Open BIM is, or can be, the tool to use for sharing designs and collaborate on their improvement.
