  • Paragraph for college students - I am building a set of the 50 most important machines that it takes for modern life to exist - everything from a tractor, to an oven, to a circuit maker. Then I create open source blueprints - so that anyone can build and maintain these at a fraction of what it costs today. My goal is to create a life size LEGO set of powerful, self-replicating production tools - that can distribute production - to build modern economies from abundant, local resources. Imagine the power this gives to people - to tap autonomy, mastery, and purpose.

Marcin Jakubowski is a Polish-American who came to the U.S. from Poland as a child. He graduated with honors from Princeton and earned his Ph.D. 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 in order to make closed-loop manufacturing a reality. He began development of the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS)—an open source tool set of 50 industrial machines necessary to create a small civilization with modern comforts. His work has recently been recognized as a 2012 TED Senior Fellow, in Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2012, as a 2013 Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, and a White House Champion of Change in 2013.

The key is that the information should be current as well as descriptive.
