  • 1. Open P2P Design. Metadesign for Open Design Projects Massimo Menichinelli Media Ecologies & Post-Industrial Production. Media Ecologies for Open Design Communities and Distributed Manufacturing November 3rd 2009 University of Salford, Greater Manchester, UK http://www.espach.salford.ac.uk/sssi/p2p/ http://openp2pdesign.org
  • 2. What is this presentation about? * successful Open Design projects need tools, processes and systems * we can co-design such tools, processes and systems using design, in an open and p2p way * then reaching the Distributed Manufacturing Scenario is a project too
  • 3. What is Open Design? a project published with a license that facilitates its sharing and that can be “compiled” or “manufactured” locally * sharing * collaboration * open licenses * code --> artifact Open Design refers to every kind of design projects that can be shared in a digital format over a network
  • 4. What kind of open design projects? * Open Web Design * Open Font Design * Open Interaction Design * Open Movie * Open Architecture * Open Product Design * ... Every Open Project except Software and Hardware?
  • 5. Open Design: OpenMoko http://www.openmoko.com / http://www.openmoko.org Source: http://www.openmoko.com It's Open Design! It's also Open It's even Open Source Software! Hardware!
  • 6. So Open Design is... * a lot of different kind of projects * in its first steps * starting from, using and including Open Source Software / Open Hardware * working well when project and artifact are code/digital * still developing tools, business models, processes and systems when the artifact is a physical good
  • 7. What is Open Design, for rival goods? a distributed system of design & manufacturing based on: * sharing * collaboration * open licenses * open and distributed projects * open and distributed manufacturing technologies A system of agents that: * use * distribute * design * manage the * manufacture end-of-life * market * ...
  • 8. Current approach to Open Design projects * very few single designers initiatives and designers interested * recent communities (very few succesful ones) * enterprises, hackers more interested in the hardware * fabbing technologies developed by hackers --> design a project and then just publish it and share it online --> the project is open, but the process is not collaborative nor open --> lack of new tools, processes, systems that enable designers and users in developing open design projects
  • 9. What we can do for enabling Open Design projects is Metadesign Metadesign is the design of the design tools, processes and systems * research and share design knowledge * design and share design tools * design and share design processes * facilitate design & manufacturing & end-of-life systems * facilitate the distributed creativity For communities For users For enterprises For designers
  • 10. Open Design actually is Metadesign * a community is designing, not just a single designer * the process is open, and therefore out of control * the process ideally never stops * designers won't design complete and definitive projects --> Metadesign is necessary for single Open Design projects --> Metadesign is necessary for making Open Design projects feasible Change of focus: from Product Design to Metadesign
  • 11. ...and we also need Strategic Design projects! * Strategic Design: “the integrated body of products, services and communication strategies that business and social actors conceive and develop to obtain a set of specific strategic results” http://www.polidesign.net/mds/ * building and offering a complete system of metadesign projects in order to enable people easily * because even business strategies should be thought as projects (and therefore design)
  • 12. Make Magazine as Metadesign and Strategic Design example * Make Magazine * Maker Faire * “Makers” Book (not Cory Doctorow's book) * Make: television * Make Controller Kit * Craft Magazine --> Tools, Knowledge, and Systems for DIY --> Metadesign projects offered within a whole Strategic Design project For Open Design we need Strategic Design and Metadesign initiatives
  • 13. How do we design such Metadesign projects? --> Open P2P Design How do we offer them in a Strategic Design project? --> openp2pdesign.org
  • 14. Facilitating a P2P system: Open Health by RED (British Design Council) http://www.designcouncil.info/mt/RED/ Source: http://www.designcouncil.info/mt/RED/ This is... P2P Service Design!
  • 15. What is Open P2P Design? Open Design (design of an open project) + P2P Design (design of a peer-to-peer system) = the co-design of Open P2P social systems
  • 16. What is Open P2P Design? Open tools + Open process = Enabling Open Systems --> a proposal for a design methodology Designers become then Enablers, Facilitators... Metadesigners
  • 17. What does Open P2P Design do? an open and p2p co-design process --> a collaborative activity self-organized by a community --> a collaborative activity that may design projects (Open Design is one of the possible applications) * service design+product design+social network analysis+... * enabling/co-designing a social system in a locality
  • 18. Three Layers of Metadesign * Metadesign of Collaborative Activities: co-design a collaborative activity that will actually design the goal * Metadesign of Collaborative Activities that design tools: co-design a collaborative activity that will actually design the tools and processes for other Open Projects * Metadesign of Collaborative Activities that design the Metadesign process: co-design a collaborative activity that will actually redesign the Metadesign process itself (1) for Open (2) for tools for Projects Open Processes (3) for rededesigning itself
  • 19. What is openp2pdesign.org? It's the Strategic Design project that offers Open P2P Design Metadesign projects It's not a startup (yet) but an hub in the Open Design network From March 2005: Next: 1 master degree thesis 3 books 1 paper 1 keynote speech 1 book 3 workshops 4 workshops 1 Open Everything event (?) 1-2 open source softwares (?) A larger network
  • 20. openp2pdesign.org : completed project Book 00: An introduction to Open P2P Design and openp2pdesign.org Spreading knowledge http://stores.lulu.com/openp2pdesign about Open P2P Design
  • 21. openp2pdesign.org : next projects Book 01: Open Source tools for Open Design Projects * Free/Open Source Softwares for Design * Free/Open Source File Formats for Design * Web-based services for Design * ... Spreading knowledge about Tools
  • 22. openp2pdesign.org : next projects Book 02: Strategic Design and Metadesign for Open Design Projects * Past and Present of Open Design * The Distributed Manufacturing Scenario * Metadesign guide for Open Design projects * ... Spreading knowledge about Processes for Open Design projects
  • 23. openp2pdesign.org : next projects Book 03: Open P2P Design: Metadesign for Complex Projects * Open P2P Design * Design & Complexity * Metadesign guide for Collaborative Activities * ... Spreading knowledge about Processes for open collaborative activities
  • 24. openp2pdesign.org : design tool (a proposal for a project) Software(s): Collaborative Design tools * Version Control System for Open Design projects + * Web-based Open Design Forge for Open Design projects Needs: * Open Source * Multiplatform * Open file formats A tool that visualizes: * Scripting/API * processes * resources * networks * interactions * history * reputation
  • 25. openp2pdesign.org : a proposal for a project Software(s): Collaborative Design tools Existing softwares that can be used: * Aptana/Eclipse/... (IDE) * SVN/... (Version Control Systems) * Trac/... (Forge) * Archimedes/... (CAD...and Eclipse IDE) What they lack now: * Image/CAD/2D/3D file formats viewer and versions diff/merge * Integration with CAD/2D/3D softwares * Integration with other Open Design communities * Integration with P2P Clients (BitTorrent/...) * ...
