Free Interaction

The less a proto needs in order to get started using something, the sooner it can get to everyone who might be interested in it! Sometimes things are hard to start using because they require that you know about a bunch of other things first. That's okay for some things, but it's always good to keep in mind that the more protos that have access to ideas and projects, the better.

If you're working on a way to solve problems, make it as easy to find and use as possible. The freer protos are to explore and share, the better.

Consider protos that may not have access to what they need in order to work on a project. Working on projects that make exploring and sharing easier is a good place to start.

The more protos can move around freely—whether it's moving around within a project, or moving around physically or online—the better decisions they can make about where to go and what to work on.
