I think we should design a royalty'free microwave oven among this mailing list; but using a CC-by license.

It will make some part of the "prosumers" realize that Design isn't about being expensive but on making our tools and products into something useful (and beautiful).

Hi. I'm new here.

I'm partial to the ovens they used to have at 7-11, with colored buttons in a vertical row, the colors corresponding to "heat" and "time", and descriptions of what each button heats.

That was back when people were afraid that microwave ovens were similar to atomic bombs.
