WHY are you motivated to support/develop this work?

  • Do you endorse open source culture?

Yes. Ever since I first started using linux in 1999 I have loved the idea of open source. It's great to see open source electronics and now with the OSE, open source as a foundation of society. I love it!

  • Why are you interested in collaborating with us?

What OSE is doing, I feel, is the fundamental foundation of the next societal evolution away from the current corrupt and dying profit model.

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

By freeing people from the constraints of the corporate profit model and enabling those with low monetary income to prosper; opening the way for a world of sustainable abundance.

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

I would like to visit for a weekend in the next few months while I finish tying up some things here at home and if there is work I can do on-site, I will gladly stay for a prolonged period of time.

  • What is missing in the project?
  • What are your suggestions for improvement of the project?

Documentation! I know this has been moved to the forefront as of late.

WHAT are your skills?

True Fan

HOW can you help?

  • How are you interested in contributing to the work of GVCS development?

Assisting in any capacity I can on site and monetarily when possible.

  • Can you volunteer to work with us, and if so, how many hours per week?

Yes, TBD.

  • 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?

No pay needed.


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

Not currently.

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



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

Sure would!

  • 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.
