You probably have heard of user generated design. A prominent example is Threadless who came to light 2 or 3 years ago and who recently graced the cover of Inc. magazine. Here is an NPR news story about it which I just heard. One commentator [from MIT] called community based design the most significant paradigm shift since the Industrial Revolution. This is also connected to the idea of crowd sourcing.
How can you embrace this in this semester's projects?
LISTEN TO NPR, KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR WORLD.
