A presentation I gave at Codemotion Roma 2013 on March the 22nd. This presentation connects the dots between the resource depletion trends (off peak), advancements in digital fabrication, open design, agile and lean manufacturing and shows the potential that an open production ecosystem may mean for ut in the future.
For those interested, here's a strongly related initiative that is also mentioned in the presentation: http://www.opensourcewarehouse.org/
Also, please note this work is strongly based on discussion I had with ouishare, open source ecology, open source hardware association, open knowledge foundation, etc...
In particular I wanted to thank:
- Marcin Jakuboski
- Catarina Mota
- Alicia Gibb
- Massimo Menichinelli
- Joe Justice
