Episode #146: The Open Source Economy

Frank is joined by Marcin Jakubowski, visionary behind the Open Source Ecology Project.  With just a $100 million share of the global economy, open source hardware and manufacturing has quite a bit of scaling up to do if it is to be successful.  Marcin is trying to address this head-on.  Topics of discussion include an update on the OSE Project, Thomas Edison as an archetype for a process of invention, economic models for scaling up, and an upcoming microhouse design workshop to be hosted in late September 2014.  Useful links are below.
