Big Picture

  1. Thinking long term,we open source everything. Such as using PhPList.
  2. Many producers are a good idea, like in Jeffersonian democracy.
  3. The time scale for transformation is by definition long
  4. We can do more by cooperation than by competition. Corollary: get rid of the patent system
  5. Opensourcng a Construction Set needs to happen only nce, as the CS is generative. It includes education and design guides.
  6. The solution for inequality in the world is not to accept it as a fact of life (think Untouchables) - but to work to bring everybody up.
  7. There are two types of work in the world: weaponry, and livingry (Fuller).
