  • Posted to Ruby wants a new design for ruby-lang.org, Oct 01, 2013

    Complaints about "spec work" are unfounded because Ruby and other open source projects are built by passionate volunteers who contribute their time to promote a project they believe in. While open calls for design like this may lead to wasted time and designs, there's no exploitation and the end result benefits the community on the whole.

    The negativity, though, hits on larger issues on inefficiencies in contributing design/UX for open source projects. This seems more like an opportunity for innovation (LayerVault?) rather than a target for griping. How can we solve this problem?
