Two weeks ago we presented on the Economy in a Box at Noisebridge in San Francisco, California – organized by the Bay Area Community Exchange. This is the most up to date report on the thinking and progress of Factor e Farm and Open Source Ecology, and is a 30 minutes (plus Q&A) worth watching. We cover one tactical approach – for the creation of local economies and politics – backed by the substance of local resource use. We cover The Liberator Full Product Release as a case in point for demonstrating open business models. We start with an overview based on the Humanity+ presentation, and end with the Economy in a Box concept.
The Q&A from the event is forthcoming, and you can also see the report on the event from BACE.
Some links for the presentation are:
Reports on the LifeTrac II prototype, Will’s second month Dedicated Project Visit report, open source honey extractor, open source heavy duty drill press, 3 minute documentary on Factor e Farm, open source chicken incubator, Factor e Farm summer agriculture walkthrough – are all backlogged and are forthcoming.
While we are on the topic of presentations, check out this talk by Juliet Schor, bestselling author, discussing her latest book – Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth. Look at minute 37:18, where she discusses Factor e Farm for about a minute out of her 40 minute presentation.
