Global Village Construction Set by Open Source Ecology

From Kickstarter:

Open Source Ecology is a network of farmers, engineers, and supporters building the Global Village Construction Set – a modular, DIY, low-cost, open source, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different industrial machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.

Off the Grid and On the Cloud is a new documentary series about people living off the grid. Here’s the official description from their Indie Go Go page:

Its the ultimate skinny on how to free yourself from the rat race. The series covers all the practical issues and brings you inspiring stories from ordinary people – men and women who woke up one morning and decided that going off the grid was the right thing for them and their families. Some of them have skills, like bushcraft or carpentry. Others just learn as they go. Some are acting out of concern for the environment. Others just want the freedom that comes from a low-cost or no-cost existence.
