Until 2028 - The Last Mile

2008-2018 marked the phase of rabid experimentation, until a discovery of the need for a transition from vision to execution. In 2018, the Founder declared that only 10 years remain in GVCS development - from which the shift will be towards applications and replication. Applications may be full open source microfactories, land-based productive operations, schools, communities, and other infrastructure projects. Specifically - we will use what we have available in 2028 to build and replicate the OSE Campus concept worldwide.

In 2020 this crystallized as the observation of a significant 'error' in the experimental phase: OSE was project managing - not product managing. Since 2018, serious experiments were undertaking regarding replication training (Open Source Microfactory Boot Camp), and in 2020, the Extreme Enterprise concept was formulated based on OSE's experience with Extreme Manufacturing. Though module-based design and swarm builds, we are now capable of building heavy machines in one day, and houses in 5 days. Based on this learning, 2020-2021 is dedicated to solving for large-scale development of enterprise, by getting enough people to show in a rapid timeframe to take significant projects to product completion. We are starting with Seed Home 2 as the test case for the extreme enterprise model.

As of 2020, we estimate about $10M budget requirement for completion of the GVCS at the very minimum, where viable products are developed for the remaining technologies. If we are effective, that may involve a bootstrapping model based on Extreme Enterprise. Otherwise, a realistic cost (by MJ) is $50M over 2020-2028 to develop all the GVCS machines to the enterprise level. Specificall, we mean highly replicable, irresistible offers consisting of robust product ecologies that solve housing, energy, manufacturing, wealth distribution, and other issues.

Overview - 2018

OSE uses several roadmaps. One is the overall roadmap to 2035. Another is the 10 year plan from 2008-2018. Third is a roadmap for each of the 50 machines. Roadmaps focus around product releases, with explicit intent to engage widespread replication as opposed to remaining in a project state. See Project vs Product.

The maps below represent more or less a linear development pattern, while we expect the reality to be more nonlinear. As such, the milestones in the maps below are being followed roughly and loosely. The end state of economic transformation to a collaborative economy remains the same.


The following are the overarching milestones of OSE for a 20 year period (2016-2035), consistent with evolutionary timescale thinking (500 years). The main milestone for the first 20 years of OSE is eradication of artificial scarcity, as a basis for the evolution of humanity. The following on general roadmaps, and do not necessarily reflect specific milestone dates based on critical paths and sequencing. General notes on sequencing are shown below, but the specific tactical steps are reflected on the Critical Path and OSE Priorities page - which both reflect a strategic approach towards the open source economy.
