I came across this in the Guardian and found the argument put forward very interesting and thought Permies would be interested too .

Interesting. You know what I think could be a game change? 3D printing. Probably a whole 'nother thread. I'd love to be able to 3D print some topography maps!

I have been waiting for 3D printers since I was in art school 25 years ago & I do think it'll be a real game changer when it hits 20% saturation.

The article was interesting and ... long. If he teemed up with the Transition Movement that would be something! I've downloaded a sample of his book, Open Source Everything, to my kindle.

If their power is in secrets, how better to take away their power?

Of course, he isn't giving away his book....
