What is this new flurry of organizational diagrams, started in the last blog post? We are planning OSE Proposal 2011, with a goal to deploy the remaining 39 technologies of the Global Village Construction Set in a radically rapid, parallel development fashion involving $2M in funding and 1 year in time. You can download this graph source here (in Dia) to make improvements, as this is work in progress, and Proposal 2011 is meant to be a collaborative process. Yes, you can involve yourself directly in building a new world.
The graph summarizes the organizational tasks required for Factor e Farm to build its infrastructure to handle 12 on-site people and to handle widespread global collaboration – by the first half of 2011. Key tasks in this involve explaining our work to a broad audience, recruiting a wider development team, building an internet platform, building additional physical infrastructure at Factor e Farm, and funding the whole package. We have had a major upsurge of involvement and support, and our goals, while admittedly optimistic, are definitely not impossible.
This package involves further open-sourcing of critical infrastructure technologies up to Full Product Release; living and testing our developments; collaborating globally; and building an initial community of 5 onsite people. We are refactoring civilization at Factor e Farm.
Ragarding the recruiting of on-site people, the farmer, builder, and engineer are critical on-site people who are contributing directly to the demonstration that a minimum 5 person team can attain a high standard of living with a 100% autarkic production of food, fuel, energy, housing, and essential technologies for comfortable living. These 3 people are in addition to a custom fabricator and general resource developer, already part of the Factor e Farm community. See the Economy in a Box presentation, second half – for a further explanation of the roles of the 5 person team. This is intended to be a direct demonstration of a lifestyle where an awake set of individuals may thrive upon 2 hours of daily labor – at a cost of living of around $25 per month and initial capitalization of $30k-$100k (depending on access to land), while attaining unprecedented quality of life free of geopolitical compromise. This is intended to demonstrate a feasibility of replicable lifestyles based on not ‘making a living,’ but rather, ‘pursuing one’s true interests and passions’ on one’s path of evolving to freedom – where the tasks required for meeting the community’s ‘creature comforts’ are attained with minimum effort.
