Marcin was born in Poland. At age ten, during the martial law period of Poland, he left for America. From early on, he wanted to apply knowledge toward a quality life for all. He graduated with Honors from Princeton University in 1995 with a degree in Chemistry and received a Ph.D. in physics, from U. Wisconsin, Madison, in the field of Fusion Energy. He found both experiences lacking in terms of practical application to addressing pressing world issues. He formulated the Open Source Ecology concept in 2003 and development of open source technology has consumed him ever since. He is presently part of a practical social experiment for creating the world's first, replicable, open source, post-industrial global village, with a living laboratory at Factor e Farm. His main interest is ‘evolving to freedom’, and making this option practical for anyone interested in a better world.
