The next installment of the 2013 Open Source Calendar (Swimsuit Edition) is here: Mr March, Marcin Jakubowski!
Physicist, Farmer and Constructor of the Global Village.
Jakubowski’s Open Source Ecology is not only attempting to develop the Global Village Construction Set, a set of 50 modular, open source industrial machines vital to modern civilization, they’re also refining and standardizing collaborative techniques and documentation for libre hardware.
They are developing tractors, well-drilling rigs, bread ovens, sawmills, hydraulic motors, and many more (well, exactly 45 more) which can be built using basic, standardized parts and low-cost materials. Their designs are open for collaboration and will be free for download, adaption and reuse. Just sort of saving the world a little bit. You’re welcome.
Got 4 minutes 11 secounds to learn more? Here’s Marcin’s TED talk.
The 2013 Open Source Calendar (Swimsuit Edition) is a collection of the most important and inspiring people in the worlds of free software, libre hardware, copyleft and open source. It’s a ‘perk’ for the crowdfunding campaign of the project ‘Year of Open Source’ – my attempt to survive an entire year only using, developing and adapting open source solutions to every aspect of life. Interested in the calendar or supporting the Year of Open Source project? or just want to check how we’re doing?
