    - different problems between general CHI and FLOSS chi
    - generative and emergent methodologies
    - HCI methods devleoped for novice?
    - cost of solving niche problems
    - academic community work on real projects
    - use open source tools
    - established usability method effetiveness in open source?

    2) Design Patterns
    open source design
    open library
    open up the svgs
    establish principles
    google usability patterns

    3) Rethinking design in open source
    - foss development analogy for design
    - put design first
    - work with users more closely
    - closed feedback loop
    - developing our own methods
    - crowdsourcing
    - novice adoption vs niche

    4) Tools
    - filtering
    - condensing
    -dialog between developers and designers proprietary vs open
    - mailman 2.0 with diagrams
    - operationalize hci principles in tools
    - apply design to improve communication

    5) Recruiting

    - build a portfolio
    - talent is rare
    - collective talent
    - just making designs open not enough, have to actively invite and recruit
