Letter to the P2P community
I've been all over the web this week, blogging, posting comments on technical boards, chatting in IRC and the like.
So far its paying off - I'm 7 votes from being #3 out of over 400 entries in the contest - I am shooting for #1 which will require 31 additional votes as of today - but its a moving target - I'd like to invite any and all to cast their votes for this project. The process takes about 5 minutes. The contest ends on the 30th of June.

This system, (Cubespawn) is Completely open Source - I'll continue to publish the blueprints, any diagrams we make and all the details relating to the project.
But an injection of funding would be greatly beneficial - and this contest provides a viable way for that to happen.
if you support: Hackerspaces, local food systems, aquaponics, local recycling, rainwater capture, wind or solar power -- then this project may have something to offer you - system components for all those kinds of systems will be a primary focus once the system is capable - second only to adding designs to the CubeSpawn system itself.
CubeSpawn is a way to implement "Downloadable" Machines: all the fabrication steps will be inherent in the system - it may take a looong time to develop, but the more its used the faster it will improve, and grow in capabilities.
I hope you can see how making things from recycled materials, locally, could benefit you or your community, and that you vote to help the project get funding - and invite others to do the same.
