I’m also a big fan of supply chain ideas. I think innovation possible with this tech in supply chain will be key to sustainability in general. Although supply chain is in some ways too complex to have one solution for all, there will be important patterns. We know that seafood production could wreck or help heal our largest global ecosystems, so it is important within the broader space of sustainable food production.
I’m also a big fan of more open IP for everything, building on OS software and progress in open manufacturing. I think the creative energy that will solve the big problems is widely distributed in DIY and other amateurs who build and design things because they love it. If we can implement various pay it forward institutions to foster this creativity and make it available through supply chain innovation, there will be plenty of wealth produced to pay back and invest in better futures.
Since supply chain is where many smallish local producers can form networks that deliver realized (consumed) value from it source, it is where the most leverage is to really change things economically towards both justice and sustainability.
To be sure, manufacturing supply chains from a design commons are very different from the ones needed in food production, but they still share a lot in terms of broadly stated purpose.
