    Transparency transparency transparency. Moving the design folks to sit with their teams is amazing and enhances collaboration with eng/PM/etc. in incredible ways. The hard part is making sure the design team still knows what's going on so they don't run over each other, make non-holistic style changes, etc.

    It's a difficult problem to solve, but I'd recommend products like Basecamp that can give designers a place to post all their work, get feedback from each other and surface overlaps before things Get Weird.

    I feel you, buddy. It's gonna be awesome, though.
