Hi Marcin,

cc. Ben

Ben thanks for making the connection.

In 2005 we had MIT Professor Neil Gerschenfeld talk about FabLabs at our Future Salon.

It is great to see that you are doing it on a farm level.

I would love to have you present your goals and experiences at a Future Salon. Would Thursday the 18th of July work for you?

Let me know, Mark. - Show quoted text -

   Hi Mark-
   Here is the link to Factor E farm site. and
   Here is more technology from Reinhold Ziegler.
   We are preparing to install the vertical aeroponic system with a vietnamese business group and bhuddist organisation San Jose at a site in Gilroy. The greenhouse is already built and we hope to begin production within 30 days.
   This is going to Marcin, his email above, he is the promoter of the openfamtech system. This will put you in touch if he wants to do a presentation at SAP or whatever, your future salons.
   Had a great time, really nice presentation by the Masai. I will certainly be interested in being kept up to date on your events.

       Hi Ben,
       Was great to have you at the last Future Salon.
       You talked about a machine that can built itself and everything else for 30K.
       That would be an interesting Future Salon topic, do you have me some more details?
       Also the tree killing bug and the fish that eats even bullfrogs would be great to get some background.
       Hope you have a great long weekend, Mark.
