WHO are you?

WHY are you motivated to support/develop this work?

  • Do you endorse open source culture?

Yeah, it's great.

  • Why are you interested in collaborating with us?

The work OSE is doing, if implemented, would go a long way toward global equity, especially in self-sufficiency and technology.

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

By putting the means of production in the hands of the working class lolz

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

Lots of prototypes so's I can sketchup them. That, and if one of the GVCS blueprints was a hovertank.

  • What is missing in the project?

A hovertank.

  • What are your suggestions for improvement of the project?

Engineer a hovertank.

Seriously, though, address the needs of communities in their fight against corporate privatization more explicitly? Possibly involving a schematic for a hovertank?

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

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

Nope, I'm poor.

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


  • 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.

You got words, son! But yeah, totes.
