Last week, one of the organizers of Next Stop Design wrote to tell us about their website. In their own words, Next Stop Design is "an experiment in 'crowdsourcing' the best ideas and designs to build a better bus stop". The website lets anyone submit a design in any medium (even pencil and paper are A-OK), and also encourages folks to try SketchUp if they're game for trying out 3D modeling. Check out some of the entries; they're neat.
A reminder (while we're on the subject of online design submissions): We launched the Design IT: Shelter Competition a couple of weeks ago. The last day to submit is in August, but don't let the absence of a looming deadline deter you from getting started -- good ideas sometimes happen before 3 am.
