parts-options-function project where people could identify alternate parts and methods for a given function.
- make every project a world read-write-wiki type collaboration (no one owns it)
- make individual functions and design elements searchable / modular
The most difficult part of this would be making it non-intrusive. Something that is an organic part of the design process itself. Even better -- somewhere people might go for inspiration and easily contribute.
Just wonder if the best solution is something completely new or some hodgepodge of existing technologies.
