Once, we merely thought stuff. Here, we often make it as well. We embrace our digital toys like so many presents under the tree, turning designers and writers into editors and animators and directors and carpenters of finished products.
Collaboration, too, is in our architecture. We are space thrown open, cubicles crumbled, titles steamrolled. Here, we bring our kids. Our dogs. Our clients. Not to mention a wish list of favorite filmmakers, musicians, activists, artists and big-thought-thinkers to hang out, invent, strum, maybe even live for awhile.
(Why not, they all seem to be moving to Portland anyway?)
