Abstract

Open innovation communities promote collective intelligence by providing members platforms to design and create user-generated content. Among these communities, many have incorporated a system to encourage users to modify each other’s work in a process called remixing. Remixing continues to evolve in open innovation communities including Github, Scratch, Thingiverse, and ccMixer. Remixing in online communities relies on a small number of technical features, and understanding the way these features are used may help us design more productive online communities. Remixing can be thought of as a form of product evolution: Together a community explores a design space of possibilities, starting from the many designs already created.
