Event: Ignite Phoenix 3 @ TCA
Event Date: February 25th, 2009
Petroleum fuel and biofuels like ethanol are made and distributed under a highly-centralized “cathedral” model. The right model for fuel production is the “bazaar” — highly-distributed community-based production, using local, environmentally-friendly inputs. We are developing an algae biofuel demonstration plant based on open source principles. We’ll enable communities in developed and developing countries to cheaply create fuel for vehicles and cooking fires, and create food and clean water. Our (modest) goals: end the dominance of Big Oil and Big Agriculture, clean our air, dramatically improve our local economy, end smoke death (2nd leading cause of death in developing countries), and end world hunger.
