International Development Design Summit

Very pleased to learn that the International Development Design Summit (IDDS) in Boston, running this month (note – originally posted July 2008), will be using Appropedia for documenting their projects.

This will be a great time to experiment with ways of using wiki pages for documenting open designs. My leaning is towards relying on the unstructured format of the wiki, documenting the designs in a fairly flexible way. But added to that, I see us using an infobox to help track certain features of the design, such as the heritage of the design – who has made it, how it has been used by others, and which other designs have been inspired by it.
