Mastermind Intro

A Mastermind is a study/action group.

The Open Source Economy Mastermind is formed to address the last unreached frontier of human economies: distribution.

It is an initiative to collect supporting players for scaling open source product development for open source microfactories powered by repositories of open source design.


Outlines the situation:

  1. Analysis of shortcomings of the maker/fab lab/hackerspace movement in terms of creating the next paradigm of distributed production
  2. Analysis of opportunities along the lines of current economic trends - namely Fragmentation
  3. Proposition of the continuous-learning, open source green fab lab as the training/production solution
