Yet another example and advocation of Open source product design. It appears that the phenomenon could be inescapable in the future. No more superstar designer, or even mediocre designer. We're all going to have to let go of our petty patents and stop feverishly wrapping the arm around our work - as Wendy said last night - there is no time for that. Design is High speed and the world is higher speed. Ideas are fast and cheap, and happen to everyone. The designer's role will have to be a collaborator, a manager, a 'tweaker', one of an ever expanding team, a 'hive mentality' developing new solutions at light speed.
