Marcin Jakubowski is known for his Open Source Ecology project and, in particular, the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS). The goal of GVCS is to create a set of 50 open source machines with which we can reboot civilization in a way that minimizes scarcity and planned obsolescence, reducing the cause of many of society’s ills. It’s an ambitious goal and to get there, the OSE needs a lot of help from both individuals and hackerspaces. Marcin recently stopped by Dallas Makerspace to discuss how we can contribute to the OSE and GVCS. We shared pizza and beer while talking about how to make the world a better place. We’ve started a Dallas Makerspace OSE Project page where you can follow our plans as they evolve. We hope to post a video of Marcin’s visit on the page soon as well.
