Marcin came to the U.S. from Poland as a child. As a farmer, technologist and ambitious entrepreneur, he is working to start a new civilization from scratch in Midwestern USA. He graduated with honors from Princeton and earned his PhD in Fusion Physics from the University of Wisconsin. Frustrated with the lack of relevance to pressing world issues in his education, he founded Open Source Ecology in 2003 and began development on the Global Village Construction Set, a DIY tool-set of 50 different industrial machines that it takes to build a small civilization with modern comforts. The aim is to enable everyone, from the remote villages in developing countries to the rural farms of Missouri - to access powerful, appropriate tools for creating better lives. Marcin says his goal is to create the Open Source Economy; an efficient economy that optimizes both production and distribution, while providing environmental regeneration and social justice; an economy that affords people an opportunity to thrive, and pursue mastery and autonomy.
