Frugal Systems Design. First attempt to define it. (Read the description first).

Frugal Systems Design is about groups of semi autonomous people designing multi purpose systems to do useful work. Many of these systems will be small scale. Automation will be an option on many of them. Many of them will be involve people working on different parts of the same project. Because we all have different talents! Even with this approach, people have a tendency to work on the easy stuff and leave the difficult stuff for later or for never. We must actively identify the bottleneck "difficult areas" and work hard to solve them too. So the systems will be modular, with various interchangeable options for the different modules. The windowfarm project seems to work in a similar way. The clam shaped solar, tracking solar accumulator, and fermentation powered pump are frugal design projects. Once the bottlenecks are removed, they will be far more than the sum of their parts.
