Open Source Ecology

I was directed to this a site earlier that claims to reduce the cost of farming equipment (I was looking for a second cheap 3D printer). I found this group is driving an Open Source project this the idea that you can cheap "build a civilisation" with the contents of a CD

They are developing the 50 most common machines that are required to get a civilisation off the ground, from tractors to bread makers, from milling machines to wind turbines and forges. I like the idea because not only will it help set up developing countries and establish their agricultural infrastructure, but it also has applications for developed countries and start up businesses.
