One evening a few months ago, Leisa and I had dinner and were chatting – as one does – about work and the challenges of design in the open source community.
One outcome of the evening was Leisa going home and registering http://www.designintheopen.org/.
It sat for a while.
Then, last week, as we were chatting about my last blog post Leisa set up the ning thing, I cut and pasted my blog post in, few bits and pieces here and there and a site is born!
The purpose of this site is to create a space where we [designers in the open source community] can come together to share our experiences, to ask each other questions, to compare notes and to promote the projects we’re working on and help get some extra eyes on our work – and to act as a support network.
