Open Source Methods for Self-Sufficient Communities

After reading about the Open Source Ecology project, I decided to do a little research and see if there were any other groups out there trying to attempt the same thing. What I found is that the majority of the small-scale, self-sufficient community projects are being funded either by universities or government grants.

The problem I think that is inherent in these models is that the interests of big business and governments tend to be at odds with the interests of the developing world. Certainly multinational corporations have a history of exploiting the workers of developing nations, as well as their governments, all in the name of profit.'
