Open-source Fashion!

I was very excited to read this article on fashion design under the Creative Commons.

Open-source is a revolutionary idea that originated in CS circles, but definitely has far-reaching impact. CS educators must spend energy on bringing out the fundamentally new contribution of open-source as a different co-operative way to think about development of ideas (and not just code). The more we equip our students (especially non-majors) to understand this idea, the lesser Wikipedia looks like a “non-authoritative” information-base and more like a social revolution. Maybe some very creative student will come up with the next cool thing to go open-source?
