THE BRIGHTON SPIRIT

Over the years, one of the most intriguing and delightful by-products of working together is how we have developed as a community. While the nature of our projects has attracted participants, it is the continued interaction and knowledge exchange that has evolved and grown the network. We call this phenomenon the Brighton Spirit.

The Brighton spirit describes a community culture with the following characteristics:

  • inclusive and collaborative, rather than competitive or exclusive
  • personal and individual, rather than formal open source mentality
  • global expertise for local issues, local experts collaborating to solve global issues
  • flat hierarchy where everybody has a voice
