April Greiman on sharing

“I’d like to see a ‘we’ focus instead of an ‘I’ focus. Currently, every designer has to have their own laser printer, and their sixteen computers […], and their this and their that. It’s so much ego and it’s such a waste. I’d like to see people sharing resources. I’m finding younger people have more affinity to the idea. In their schooling they have access to the new tools that are metaphors for networking, linking up, collectiveness, connectedness and wholistic thinking. At school, these kids get used to using computers. Then they get out and can’t afford them. I’d like to see us associating more – sharing space, sharing time and sharing spirit. Sort of an upscale communism.”
