We're inspired by the open source movements, and do our best to align with open source solutions whenever feasible.
The Open Source Ecology project is developing open source industrial machines that can be made for a fraction of commercial costs, and they share their designs online for free. The goal of Open Source Ecology is to create an open source economy – an efficient economy which increases innovation by open collaboration. The Buddhist Geeks Farm is aligned with the goals of Open Source Ecology, and we will seek out opportunities for collaboration with them, especially with their Open Building Institute.
Open Source Dharma is a newly proposed open standard & network, whose aim is to encourage the flourishing of a transparent, collaborative, creative, & evolutionary ecosystem of dharma. Just like the Buddhist Geeks Farm, Open Source Dharma is one of the projects being incubated in the Buddhist Geeks Labs. Any teachings offered on The Farm will be released under an open license as free cultural works.
