Why Freedom at Work™
The first time I heard about the concept of a Freedom-Centered Workplace, I immediately wanted to learn more, and quickly started thinking about ways for us to adopt organizational democracy at DreamHost. When we founded DreamHost, we knew we wanted to do things differently, and that meant questioning every approach to running key parts of the business. We took a lot of inspiration from the underground techno and punk rock music scenes back then, and the democratic, community-focused nature of open source software has always had a huge influence on all of us. The concept of a Freedom-Centered Workplace was a natural progression of ideas we built into our DNA.
