Les Tiers Lieux, des méta-dispositifs issus de l'informatisation sociale

Abstract : The Third Places correspond to intermediate environments of home and business illustrated by digital manufacturing workshops, fablabs, hackerspaces and co-working spaces. These environments reveal a typology of users that are students, amateurs, and independent professional workers who use their skills to achieve individual and collective projects These projects following the models are based on the "doing" and on the "Project mode". The research analyzes the way in which these environments develop in the Paris area and in different sectors: institutional, cultural, associative, and entrepreneurial in a complex, accelerated and digital world. To analyze the Third Places and give an account of their development in society, we introduce a critical posture (critical interactionism) that discusses the effects of these environments on their users, considering their sociability and the different technical and technological equipment available. The thesis also focuses on social computerization as a process of convergence of ICTs in human activities internal to the Third Place. The relationship to cognitive capitalism (search engine, digital platforms for the diffusion of knowledge and social networks) is discussed, which is illustrated by an accumulation of knowledge and creativity (intangible investment) through the use of ICTs by and for the project leaders.
