hi maja - there are a lot of conversations going on, not always explicitly
about design, but easily understood as such. i would put projects like the
tea house in there (although it also speaks to several other issues)


the april report from the foundation also has some other projects
(see Wikimedia-l Digest, Vol 98, Issue 23), but many of them are very
specific. i like the generality of the 'redefine' project. one thing that
is obvious though, is that the 'performativity' aspect of the project is
understood purely on the grounds of conventional design (readability, noise
reduction etc) and doesn't really enter the realm that i think you're
interested in, ie knowledge politics.
