I watched an excellent TED talk by Marcin Jakubowski on using the open source model for hardware – creating farming, construction and power generation machinery that users can build and maintain.

If we can lower the barriers to farming, building, manufacturing, then we can unleash massive amounts of human potential that’s not only in the developing world.

When you start creating open business models, you increase vastly the potential for addressing problems – including pressing ones like feeding our planet.
