Open Source Kite Design

"www.zeroprestige.org is a weblog devoted to the design iteration of kitesurfing and kitepowered sports. Principally we are interested in furthering the sport by enabling an 'open source' (shared knowledge and documentation) approach to kite-building and to the building of bars, boards, ice and snow equipment, and things kite-powered in general."

Two of my favourite things: kites and open source design.

Unfortunately the site seems to be a little dormant for now, the creator now working at the very interesting Squid Labs, who are responsible for Instructables and its descendant,Howtoons - they also keep an interesting blog, outlining as it does some of their day-today approach and thinking on collaborative design.
