He is introducing Open Design gradually,helping companies and inﬂuencing howpeople understand what quality is, how tomake the connection between the producer,Open Design and consumers, to search thenext stage.
He wants to put the designer ﬁrmly back inthe center of the design process.It s really about having control of creativeoutput. I have to ﬁnd a way to ensure that mycreativity will not stop at the producer s frontdoor.
Yet these early adopters are more intomaking things for the sake of making,regardless of what they create, whether it ssome mechanical toy or decoration for theirlaptop.
