In 1983 I was quoted $3,000 to have a wedding dress made by a bridal shop in Wellington – no way my Mum could afford that dress. We would have to make it ourselves.

So we went into Fitzroy’s, an old fashioned draper's shop in Levin, and within minutes of hearing that I was marrying a local lad, “Nancy’s boy”, we were surrounded by a clutch of woman: comparing fabrics, discussing how to adapt the paper pattern, which lace, what size seed pearls etc … I’m sure you get the picture.

That dress turned out heaps better than anything I was thinking of – and saved us a fortune too!

That was my first grownup experience of crowd-sourcing, ‘group think, community consultation, collaborative design – call it what you will. What I learnt that day was the power of community ownership, adaptation and the sheer power of collaboration.

These are key concepts in the open source world.

  • Does anyone hear remember Fitzroys? It was a drapers up at the north set of lights, early ‘80s. In 1983 I was engaged to be married and the dress I had been quoted $3,000 to have a dress made by a bridal shop in Wellington – no way we could afford that dress. We would have to make it ourselves. So we went into Fitzroy’s, and within minutes of hearing that I was marrying a local lad: “Nancy’s boy” we were surrounded in a clutch of woman. Comparing fabrics, discussing how to adapt the paper pattern, which lace, what size seed pearls etc … I’m sure you get the picture. You know that dress turned out heaps better than anything I was thinking of – and saved us a fortune too! That was really my first real life experience of crowd-sourcing, ‘group think, community consultation, collaborative design – call it what you will. What I learnt that day was the power of community ownership, adaptation and the sheer power of collaboration. These are key concepts in the open source world.
