The most important metric towards our vision of creating the open source economy is the number of open source livelihoods created (open source social enterprises) - which would reflect the level of self-determination that people attain - in true freedom. The number included in that must consider that we are not causing harm to other people or to the environment.

So in summary: the number of right livelihoods created and facilitated. Open source products are our means to get there.

Others that should be tracked as best as possible, and a tracking strategy should be implemented for each:

  • Number of independent replications of our machines worldwide. We know of about 50, but there may be hundreds.
  • Number of jobs created within the open source economy.
  • Development hours per week from the entire community.
