Adrian, though I haven't read the article (yet) (my 'net connection is 
brief atm... and my attention span briefer) but it sounds a lot like the 
"open source" mentality that I *do* think we have here at evolt.org... 
(glances at article... oh it's about drupal, an open source project, ok 

It also sounds a bit like how writers often solicit feedback as they are 
finishing a piece of writing... different than open source but riffing 
off some of the same principles.. "given enough eyes all bugs are shallow"

We *have* been soliciting feedback (I have) but mostly on theforum. 
However, the survey we sent out was related to design, and went to the 
whole list.
