Bringing different people together to enhance each other is what draws me to Design Thinking. For me, the people are what make the process amazing.

So, what if I'm on the bus back from work, have 15 minutes, and think "Hey! Who's innovating now?". I take out my OpenIdeating app, and instantly see a bunch of crazy, cool, touching and inspiring ideas that are floating around. I grab a hold of the one that seems closest to me, and instantly I'm surrounded by fellow-minded design thinkers. In real time we ideate, build on top of one another, spark different branches of thought, and change the world a little. I get off the bus, the world a little more awesome than when I got on.

It's like OpenIdeo, with new challenges coming in real-time from all sides. OpenOpenIdeo in a sense, the free-for-all playground for design thinkers everywhere.
