Open Design Now! is a must read for anyone interested in Open Design. The book is a series of articles written by designers, design thinkers and educators to provide varied perspectives on the open design movement. Some see the movment as a far off idea, whereas others see the roots of open design in our recent and not so recent history.
The book is free (open design duh!) so go and read it now, then after you fall in love with the book, buy it to support our movement!
