Far-future research dialogue by Philips Design

Open Source Ecology (OSE)is a network of farmers, engineers and other supporters. The main goal of OSE is the eventual manufacturing of the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS). As described by Open Source Ecology "the Global Village Construction Set is an open technological platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small civilization with modern comforts." Open Source Ecology was founded in 2003 by Marcin Jakubowski, he had the feeling that science was 'too closed of' from the world's problems. OSE was launched during a TED talk in 2003 which is a very fresh presentation of an extremely interesting idea.
