I guess seeing the scene (see below) in my hometown (Dayton, Ohio) makes me think GM was kind of a failure, however too big to fail they may have been. Hey GM, ‘you guys need a place to build these?!?! Boy, do I have a deal for you!
I always wanted to start an Open Source Cubic Meter project, where the intent was to grow as much food or perhaps absorb as much carbon as possible in a surface-level cubic meter. My concept would use Google SketchUp to sketch them, and hopefully university funding to test. There would be climate and/or terrain specific versions developed by the community, and the results could be multiplied the world over. Maybe I should try again or maybe it’s already happening somewhere online? =)
p.s. How about an open source cubic meter project for generating independent sustainable power?
