Study 1: The open design landscape
Until recently, limitations to the availability of successful empirical examples of open design projects have caused a noticeable gap in the scientific literature. In the following chapter I provide a quantitative study (n = 104) of relevant projects. My goal is to explore the landscape of open source development in the world of atoms, to analyze project characteristics, structures, and success, and to investigate similarities and dissimilarities to open source software development.
