I think the frame stopped here in part 1 of the YouTube series is a powerful message. “Fiat stopped to listen.” It’s step 1 in the objectives (learn) and one that permeates through every aspect of the framework. Fiat set out (with help from the agency AgenciaClick Isobar) in unprecedented fashion to launch the first ever crowdsourced car. Fiat built a forum at http://www.fiatmio.cc/ - really a small social network – that created a workspace for exchange of dialog between Fiat drivers and car designers.
