it's nice to see that there are already quite few people registered and
ready for the discussion! I will introduce myself as well then.
I am Massimo Menichinelli, I'm from Italy and currently living in
Helsinki, Finland. I've been working on using design tools and processes
for co-designing open source organizations around projects for already
some years now. And, of course, such open source organizations could be
developing design projects as well, that's why I'm interested in Open
I'm much less interested in an Open Design as a traditional design
project, I prefer to focus on all the processes, systems and tools that
make the design of the project in an open way possible (on the social,
business and technological side).
After graduating with a thesis on this subject (2005-2006), I started
the openp2pdesign.org website and went on investigating and testing
I'm currently investigating these issues more as a doctoral candidate at
Aalto University - School of Art, Design and Architecture - Media Lab
and I'm also working as Producer for the FabLab activities at the Aalto
FabLab, here in Helsinki. We are currently finishing the construction
works and we will soon open it.
I'm also working on the organization of the Open Knowledge Festival with
Kat and other people, and that's where the idea of the Open Design
definition comes from! ;)
Looking forward to working with you on this project! :)
