We all read (I would think) Alvin Toffler's description of how people will be involved in designing their own products. This smart paper goes well beyond that original observation, sketching a technical infrastructure for metada-design involving communities of practice and (as they are called today) power users. The paper proposes a seeding, evolutionary growth, and reseeding model for the the development of domain-oriented design environments and concludes with the observation that open source software development provides a good example of the process of consumer designed products.
