WHO are you?

WHY are you motivated to support/develop this work?

  • Do you endorse open source culture?

I am building an IT organization based on Open Sources Technologies, I am trying to embrace the culture by giving back.

  • Why are you interested in collaborating with us?

I need the practice.

I have been operating out of a tent for 2 years now, and not much productivity has resulted. I am beyond a crisis state of poverty, and I am tied of working for free ( well at a cost cause if was free I should still have money) and I want to contribute and help our community grow and prosper. Me being inactive over here is not helping our society. I like Marcin's idea of completing major sections of his proposal before the apocalypse comes, and If I can help, I would love to offer my services.

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

we can work on reducing our foot print and resource demand.

Bring "Leave No Trace" into day to day philosophy.

Enabling our community to own their designs

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

I need funding to contribute to any future projects.

I have time and aspirations for the projects listed by OSE, however due to issues a few years ago, I have fallen into a spiral I can not crawl out of on my own.

I need some training with blender, and possibly some sample drawings to work from.

Wii Remote White Board - SuperPanda

Hands on use of the products that make up the project work to provide better documentation.

The ability to build small tractor for my landscaping company to use and document our findings

  • What is missing in the project?

Possibly Source Control?

  • How have you already contributed to the project?

I did not want to start contributing without any hands on knowledge.

I can not volunteer 100% of my time, but I am willing to work up to 80 hours per week.

I have been used to working two jobs and school for many years, I am not opposed to work. Just need direction and some goals.

I would like the ability to continue my mountain biking regiment and to continue working on my organizations projects during any down time.

  • Are you interested in working with us for pay? If so, what services can you offer, and what is your hourly or per-project rate?

Yes, but I am trying not to be unreasonable by demanding anything.

Services are assorted.
Software Development

Yes, I am willing to dedicate time to this cause, and I feel some time using the products could add value to the content I could contribute.

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


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


Pretty sure thats why I am applying, is to encourage other fans.

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

I am willing to under these conditions:

I would like the ability to continue my mountain biking regiment and to continue working on my organizations projects during any down time.

  • 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.

I would definitely be interested, long as there was room for my bike.

Would also need dry storage for tools, I would need tools for a 2 year commitment.
