"Nomadic resilient base"

< DRAFT+ >

    2017-02-23 ejected 🔗hackbase-type3 !
    2017-09-22 merged-in from 🔗base-eu
    2017-10-09 cleanup
    2020-08-20 re-importing + currently overviewing ...


How it works

    * People living & hacking in portable architecture (tents, etc)

    * Deployed:
        in nature, or in cities
        in and around hacker festivals / camps

    * Financed with use contributions, and (cash, equipment) donations

    * Stored or sold away after use:
        parts left in different places, recomposing, adding up

    * Moved into place for next deployments

Example: CHT4-C (2016-Feb, Mar)

(Packed up.)

Contents (What's in the boxes)

Full subsistence infrastructure.
Standard CHT #boxes.
See 🔗stuff, also 🔗ordering.
    * http://twitter.com/chtotalism/status/708048605513445376 (like image above)

The equipment is sorted and stored in plastic impermeable storage boxes.

Design targets

    1000€ (but can already start with 300€)

    1 ISO pallet

    * 🔗base-eu : CHT's planned EU instance of a Type-2 base


* Nomadic peoples around the world:
    "It is estimated that there are about 30-40 million nomads around the world." *

* Hacker camps attract thousands of people yearly, with hundreds of crews:
    → 🔗calendar

* People interested in survivalism, high-performance camping, bushcraft, etc:
    → 🔗camping


    These setups are not hackbases.
    They do not invite open participation, etc.

(2017-10: graph just a sketch, also the main documents covering this need a re-ordering)


    * Get people involved + find initial funding


    * 🔗flocking
    * 🔗pr

    * How to cover initial investment? Maybe ICO?
    * How to secure maintenance budget (running costs)? What to do if the base goes bankrupt?
    * How to effectively re-fund the base for new deployments?
    * [...]

    * List needed parts/contents, and buy them

See 🔗stuff, 🔗ordering and 🔗markets

    * Determine location

Consult 🔗land-attributes.


    * Move boxes to location (Logistics)

Reference shipment quote:
    via http://www.pallet2ship.co.uk
    * Europallet = 100x100x100cm, 100kg
    * Berlin -> Guildford (UK), location of EMF camp
    * = ~200€ + VAT
        looks that's too much

Some equipment would better be not shipped, but bought on site:
    * very heavy/big stuff (like: batteries)
    * very breakable stuff (like: solar panels?)

Perhaps logistics in itself is a mistake:
    * "Always strive for replication, not for transportation"
    * The end tab should be picked up by local people, and so a new "hackbase seed" started
    * This would need a unique system of funding
 <--- #subfinance

Alternative ways:
    * People already going there, helping to transport ("hitch-hiking logistics")
    * [...] !!!

    * Uptime / Day-to-day work

See 🔗roles, etc.

    * Teardown + Move to Storage

Also see 🔗flocking.


    * Storage

"Where boxes are during downtime".

It's currently an annoying and recurring problem for the CHT base in Lanzarote, as well.
This ties to #vaults.

    * buy a van:
        (what CHT did with 🔗trucko)
    * weather-proof + bury boxes underground
    * separate into parts / modules (boxed up anyway), and disperse around different people
    * deploy as a local hackerspace ("active storage" pattern)
    * #vaults, an european network
    * [...]

Storage is simpler, as the base prototype/model is improved:
        capacity to be stored outside or buried underground:
        (this now supposedly almost works, since #cht4c)
    * more compact, lighter, etc:
        (needing less space, easier to move around by anybody on the ground)
    * better appearance:
        (so it can be stored in somebody's living room)

And also as:
    * the network improves (#vaults)
    * [...]


Open questions:
    * How to make decisions about where the base goes next, etc?
    * What constitutes deciding power?
    * [...]

Protections for stewardship-transfer:
    * The model must not be a "no-profit pre-assembled & optimized all you need pack" ending up in the hands of bourgie campers
    * New stewards must commit to maintaining the openness:
        in some way, a GPL-like transitivity
    * so: bases should not be bought and sold as "speculative commodities" !

I guess this opens the space for a "hackbases foundation".

*** PAD

!!! compare with type 1

    * seems to CHT focused
    * find other type 2 collectives ?!

    * these are modes of hacker being
    * based on actual things you can do on the side (~10-20h/week)
    * that are cool ("agree with you")
    * sensible, agreable work
    * ... that you need to be on the land for
    * cleaning up trash (plastic, construction leftovers, hunter bullets, etc)
    * herding ("hacker cowboys") would be good for the land
    * "forestry": cleaning up wood, invasive species control, etc
    * terraforming: planting trees, terrain modifications, etc
    * water + aquifier management: canals, aljibes, etc
    * biology & other field science research
this typology, as all, needs:
    * a WORKFLOW with tactical tools
    * totalist awareness of complete environment ("don't pick a random valley")
