The Final Prompt

During this course I came across a great deal of new for me online communities and networks.

For me personally, the most important thing that I have learned about using online communities and networks in innovative design,is that you have to have a clear idea what kind of thing or help you are looking for. It is much easier to find what you need when you know exactly what and where to look for. Another things is to learn to let go of some ideas for he benefit of others. This I learned can speed the working process, especially in a group.

For me , as a designer, I think I will have a few design principles to build my work on and follow them as a guide.

First of all it would be Simplicity. I believe the simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication I believe that if a product is simple, and so with the simplicity it comes its elegance and easy understanding of the audience.

Second of all I must say is Breaking the stereotypes and thinking outside the box. I believe that is crucial as our society is fast changing nowadays and I think that we should create the future and set it up rather than follow already established rules and grounds.

Third of all I think is Conflict. I think there should be some sort of a conflict in every design project, because when there are conflicts, more opinions and ideas tend to evolve in order to achieve maximum efficency.

To the next years I would say good luck and  focus on from the beginning as thing move very quickly. It would help if the topics were more appealing to the younger audience and this would really affect the contribution they have in this class. For me it would be valuable as I discovered a lot of new stuff to use for my on going IDE and also it thought were to look for answers when I have problems and questions.

    I agree w/ Meggie – conflict (or as a friend of mine likes to call it, creative abrasion) can be very generative. I think we also need to learn how to do conflict well – I know sometimes I have a hard time with it.

    You mentioned something else I’d love to learn more about. You wrote: “It would help if the topics were more appealing to the younger audience and this would really affect the contribution they have in this class. “It would help if the topics were more appealing to the younger audience and this would really affect the contribution they have in this class. ” Would you please give some examples? That would be VERY helpful!

    Thanks again for being part of Project Community!

    Interesting! You mention Conflict as a design principle. I like it that you not just copied some of the principles that you saw elsewhere. Many people try to avoid conflict but I agree that it can lead to creativity and takign things to a next level.
    As long as the conflicht stays violence-free, of course. I am looking forward to seeing your next steps!
