definitely yes !

If you had a design challenge, would you join and participate in one of the types of online communities we’ve been researching? Why or why not?

If there is an opportunity, why don’t take it?

Am taking everything what life gives me:

“If life gives you lemons –slice those suckers and find some tequila!”

In my “language” this means – if you have problems or challenges, accept or solve them in the best way, just do the best you can and take all “awards” you want. MAKE THE BEST FROM THE WORST.

I am never afraid of challenges. If you have an opportunity to do something, just do it, because if someone gave you this, he thinks that you are good enough to do.

So If I had a design challenge, I would love to join and participate in one of the types of online communities we’ve been researched!


I really don’t have an explanation. I just would be in it. Not because I like this online community but because of the challenge. I would be able to change the situation to the better side.

Furthermore, this project could give you the best experience and recommendations for your later job. This is one of the most useful parts of taking an opportunity.

Also, with your participation, you can help people, you can share useful information, and you can create new spaces. Maybe you will find that this is the way of your life?

Now we are working on NGO’s, so this can have a huge impact why to be in it. They work on people needs: try to solve problems in poor countries, give everything to make sure that people will have better life conditions. Maybe you can help them by your work? And with your work can make someone’s life to be better? Or maybe it’s just my opinion because I am a volunteer. I have been participating in many projects and these have changed my view about taking all opportunities you have definitely.

All in all, I think that all people have to contribute as much as they can.

I would love to join; I would love to see how everything works. No matter if it would be the best experience, or maybe the biggest nightmare.

    Your personal observation of liking a challenge is exactly one of the main motivators people are tapping into in these large “design challenges” in the NGO sector. I met with a designer of one of these challenges last week and asked, “how do you know you have succeeded?” and he said, “we don’t have a definitive answer yet, but we know we have tapped into a powerful force. People really like an important challenge!”

  2. My answer is strickly personal this time:

    Love this:
