WHY are you motivated to support/develop this work?

  • Do you endorse open source culture?

Of course, since I have profited a lot from it.

  • Why are you interested in collaborating with us?

This is the kind of honest, down to earth projects which will truly may change our world. Also I feel there's much for me to learn from this. And would be a way to contribute back to the OS community.

  • How do you think that the GVCS can address pressing world issues?

The idea of post scarcity economy in conjunction with durable, repairable goods, is something with what I commune a lot. I know a lot of places where this project would do great good, specially in developing world like Chile, but education is also an issue.

  • What should happen so that you become more involved with the project?

This is my first step, we'll see how that works out. Mostly is a problem of time, hence money.

  • What are you missing in the project?

Desalination plant or moisture capture for dry climates, or coastal deserts.

  • What are your suggestions for improvement of the project?

  • How have you already contributed to the project?

Just sharing the word.

HOW can you help?

  • How are you interested in contributing to the work of GVCS development?

  • Can you volunteer to work with us, and if so, how many hours per week?

Yes. I have considered almost full time work, for about 10 continuous days. By a weekly basis I can give from 4 hours weekly.

  • Are you interested in working with us for pay? If so, what services can you offer, and what is your hourly or per-project rate?

I am interested, in average I charge US$ 25 per hour.


  • Are you interested in purchasing equipment from us to help bootstrap development?

Yes, eventually

  • Are you interested in bidding for consulting/design/prototyping work?

wasn't until you asked here; now I am.

  • Would you like to see yourself working with us on a full-time basis?


  • Are you interested in using the technologies that we are developing directly?


  • Are you interested in being part of the world's first, open source, resilient community? The GVCS is the preparatory step for the OSE Village Experiment - a 2 year, immersion experiment (2013-2014) for testing whether a real, thriving, modern-day prototype community of 200 people can be built on 200 acres using local resources and open access to information? We are looking for approximately 200 people to fill a diverse array of roles, according to the Social Contract that is being developed. This may be the boldest social experiment on earth - a pioneering community whose goal is to extend the index of possibilities regarding harmonious existence of humans, ecology, and technology - as a beacon of light to benefit of all people on Earth.

Yes absolutely, but my wife has her concerns, but is interested also.
