Bjarke Ingels: Hedonistic sustainability
I agree that sustainability is not quite occurring in the work that is presented. It IS a step towards greater perspective in the architectural field. linking municipalities, connecting people, creating innovative designs- these are important in enrolling the average person towards a more holistic lifestyle. I am a pioneer member of a community endeavor that is seeking to address the issues presented although on a much smaller scale: sustainabilitynonprofit.org. Good stuff!

Michael Pawlyn: Using nature's genius in architecture
Bravo! Its relieving to see serious designers working on issues of such magnitude with an integrated systems approach. The group I am a part of creating is working at a smaller scale but with no less ambitious goals similarly using a systems-oriented approach: sustainabilitynonprofit.org

Open Source University, Open Source Civilization
A worthy goal! An issue to resolve will be keeping the mountains of data manageable and accessible. When profit is no longer the motive, I believe people ultimately work for the common good. The open source movement is truly a triumph of humanity. The project i am involved in has parallel goals of offering open source blueprints for sustainability with the added element of social sustainability- as in how to go about meeting the needs of the humans beyond those of survival. sustainabilitynonprofit.org

Marcin Jakubowski: Open-sourced blueprints for civilization
This is a fascinating project. seems that the next step would be programmable swarm robots that did the various bits of work. Perhaps make the 3d printer first, then print the robots which are able to assemble the rest of the machinery. I appreciate the idea of modular systems that require the same basic components and are thus interchangeable. I see the project i am involved in as a sibling to this one. We are gearing towards offering open source energy, housing, food production. and social systems. sustainabilitynonprofit.org good work! thank you for your contribution to humanity!

Katherine Fulton: You are the future of philanthropy
It's great to have a better sense of how the people hold the power. The collective effort is much more powerful, intelligent, resourceful and responsive than centralized efforts can ever be. The capacity of the web and technology to enable such harmonized efforts is amazing to witness. This philosophy is a central aspect of the community I am a part of creating: http://www.sustainabilitynonprofit.org (and we're looking for new members!)
