English term or phrase: Wet and dry spaces
¿Qué son "wet and dry spaces"?

Wet spaces contain two or more people (often large crowds) who are in touching distance of each other while dry spaces are individual spaces where no communication takes place with the outside world.

Gracias.

"espacios de interacción" y "espacios aislados"
Explanation:
El mismo texto de antes: "Gold talked about how ideas migrate between "wet, dry and damp" spaces within the organization. "Wet" space is face-to-face human interaction, such as Davos. "Dry" space is work in isolation. "Damp" space is electronically mediated. A quarter of all Xerox employees are technical reps and work in very "dry" spaces, he said, but they have a tremendous amount of knowledge. Xerox has created a "damp" space that interlinks laptops in the field. It is used to help solve difficult problems on the spot in the customer's office. It started, in fact, in France with the Minitel. Reps are encouraged to place their ideas and suggestions in the "damp" space.
