Massimo Menichinelli is a designer working and researching on open collaborative projects (Open Design/Open P2P Design) and the systems that design them since 2005. He’s interested in the relationships between design, localities, communities and complexity, learning from Open Source, P2P and Web 2.0 software and adopting their principles and practices. He has worked as a designer and also at the Politecnico di Milano where he has given lectures about the relationships between design/locality/community/complexity and he has been interested in the organization of the design community of some courses.
 
  
He has participated both as participant and as organizer of Design and Open Source related conferences and events both in Italy and in Spain. Recently he was invited as facilitator for a workshop about Open Innovation at UrbanLabs 08 ([[http://urbanlabs.net]]), an event organized by Citilab-Cornellà (Barcelona) dedicated to the use of new technologies to generate social innovations for the city and citizens. He publishes articles and books within the openp2pdesign.org project, an under construction network for the research and design of open and collaborative projects for communities and localities.
 
  
The first book “openp2pdesign.org_1.1″ has been published in Italian, English and Spanish ([[http://www.scribd.com/openp2pdesign]] for the digital download and [[http://stores.lulu.com/openp2pdesign]] for the print version); it summarizes the first years of this project and the Open P2P Design methodology proposed and shared for its continuous development and redefinition. A methodology developed  in order to design with/for a Community/Locality System a collaborative activity that will generate open and social innovations (Open Innovation / Social Innovation).
