This module is named after Dr. Eric von Hippel of MIT who wrote the seminal book mass customization/personalization/open innovation Democratizing Innovation.
In essence, it’s a way to create your own module. It was Eric’s belief that you can’t really call yourself an open platform for innovation unless you truly let people innovate on their own. This was Bug Labs intention.
