I found Holm Friebe’s LIFT talk to be especially inspiring today. His “hedonistic company” is a codification of the way many freelancers already work, but the act of codifying that lifestyle gives it more gravity, more intentionality (especially when most of our clients don't work that way). Could more people (not just designers) work this way? What would manufacturing look like if we applied this model? It’s strange to think about it, but so many of the jobs out there are merely by-products of the dominant form of industrial organization. Can everyone be employed creatively? Or, will we always need someone “to clean shit up?” I guess I’m starting from the assumption that everyone would find Holm’s seven-and-a-half rules a desirable way to work (a false assumption, to be sure).
