Michel in Milan
FYI - Michel has put us in touch with some people "how p2p does support collaborative services (a service mode implicated by grassroots social innovation) in more micro perspectives, everyday life problems like food, house, transportation, welfare, community services and so on." They appear to be Chinese and Korean PhD students studying in Italy.
Nice to know that the "leading lights of the open design movement... are all loosely associated with appropedia.org," :-)
I'll make a brief response, but feel free to jump in if you wish (or let me know if you want to be CCed).

Dear Gong and Joon,
I appreciate your interest very much and am sure both of you will be pioneering approaches within or outside your respective countries. It's great to see people from Asia involved in this, as this is where the most interesting stuff will be happening in a few years
I think it may be of use to put you in touch with some of the leading lights of the open design movement, so you can exchange ideas with people much more directly in the know, but please keep me in the loop,
they are all loosely associated with appropedia.org,
these pages on our own wiki have lots of info as well: http://p2pfoundation.net/Category:Design
don't hesitate to ask for concrete things, if I don't know, I may know the people who know <g>

Dear Michel, I hope you had a nice trip! thanks again for your lecture and nice conversation with us. as far as i understand, we have strong common interests on p2p and social innovation. maybe you focus more p2p based social innovation in macro perspectives like politics, economy and governance. our research focuses more how p2p does support collaborative services (a service mode implicated by grassroots social innovation) in more micro perspectives, everyday life problems like food, house, transportation, welfare, community services and so on. so it would be very helpful if we have more opportunities to exchange our research and opinions.
look forward to next time! and keep in touch!
all the best!
