Speaker Biography <http://opensourceecology.org/marcin-jakubowski/>:

Marcin Jakubowski is the founder of Open Source Ecology
<http://opensourceecology.org>, an open collaborative of engineers,
producers, and builders developing the Global Village Construction Set
(GVCS). The GVCS is a set of 50 most important machines that it takes
for modern life to exist – everything from a tractor, to an oven, to a
circuit maker. Marcin is producing open source blueprints – so that
anyone can build and maintain machines at a fraction of what it costs
today. His goal is to create a life size LEGO set of powerful,
self-replicating production tools – that can decentralizew
production – to build modern prosperity in local economies. He
imagines the raw power this gives to people – to tap autonomy,
mastery, and purpose – towards rebuilding their communities and
solving wicked problems. Marcin believes that true freedom – the most
essential type of freedom – starts with peoples’ individual ability
to use natural resources to free themselves from material
constraints – to unleash human potential.
