*** About the base

Dear Comrades !


    Project Abstract

(Too long? Skip and just read the annotations.)

https://archive.totalism.org/newphoto/cht/IMG_20150501_153217984.jpg

    This hackbase is an infrastructure project, designing and deploying a free living habitat. Meaning: it's researching a general recipe to organize a new and completely different lifestyle around, and also a real place, practicing this.
    live-in for almost free, any time you want, and organise a 

    Hackbases are live-in hackerspaces, the critically missing infrastructure to enable full-time vanguard technologist lifestyles. A common hacker is a hobbyist, hanging out at the local hackerspace, playing with personal projects after necessary main work that covers their subsistence, and then going home to an often expensive urban-area apartment. Sometimes hailed as some ultimate constructive and radical force, hackers are subsumed by the life logic of current advanced capitalist societies.
The point is to change this, and shift a negative trend of how technology is redefining societies. Currently, with "the end of work" (through work and process automation), hackers with normal day jobs are powering a bullshit neoliberal political reality, which is destroying the basic pillars of public life, like free accessible education and healthcare, rising city rents and gentrification, an ongoing ecocide, etc.
These problems are as insufficiently addressed, and structurally cannot be solved by big corporate, startup, non-governmental or academic organisations, as well as by current hackerspaces.
------------
    Hackbases come from the ethos of hackerspaces.

The critically missing infrastructure to enable full-time vanguard technologist lifestyles. 

How are hackbases different from hackerspaces?
A common hacker is a hobbyist, hanging out at the local hackerspace, playing with personal projects after necessary main work that covers their subsistence, and then going home to an often expensive urban-area apartment. Sometimes hailed as some ultimate constructive and radical force, hackers are subsumed by the life logic of current advanced capitalist societies.
The point is to change this, and shift a negative trend of how technology is redefining societies. Currently, with "the end of work" (through work and process automation), hackers with normal day jobs are powering a bullshit neoliberal political reality, which is destroying the basic pillars of public life, like free accessible education and healthcare, rising city rents and gentrification, an ongoing ecocide, etc.
These problems are as insufficiently addressed, and structurally cannot be solved by big corporate, startup, non-governmental or academic organisations, as well as by current hackerspaces.



    This hackbase began as "Cyberhippietotalism" or "CHT#1" in 2011. After 3 years as a rented house, the second version of the base restarted in November 2014, as an experimental off-grid habitat research initiative, scheming to buy first plot of land and settle in the same area: North of Lanzarote, Canary Islands . A series of over 100 experimental living situation/camps have been performed since the 2014/2015 season:

See 🔗camps !




    Core interests

    Self-sustainability, off-grid, autarky / resilience and temporary architecture research & alternative construction // Free software and free hardware development / GNU/Linux / Free Industry // Open data, workflow and organisational technology, Tektology // Hypermedia // Digital nomadism // Critical theory // Sound studio, bands, Intermedia Art // Growing food // Renewable energy technologies // Nootropics // A nomad hacker lifestyle in a network of hacklabs // "Coliving" and "Coworking" // Hacker camp // Financial and temporal freedom // Autonomy // "Open source ecology" // Anthropocene, Environment regeneration

Also see:
    * 🔗commonground - conceptuals / manifesto
    * 🔗next - current projects
    * 🔗season4 (year plan)




    Current camps !

Season 4 & 5 are experimental camping (see 🔗season4): focusing on new nomadic tech 🔗stuff and know-how, and sites in Lanzarote.


      When?

Anyone can come at any time, either:
    * join a planned subseasons. How - check 🔗next.
    * start a new subseason -  fly in, and unpack the base following 🔗flocking (self-organisation protocols).

      Where?

    * Currently the project has no fixed house or territory. It operates as temporary camps on temporary grounds, researching and experimenting with different approaches
    * We understand the territory through 🔗maps, and develop existing and new sites for temporary inhabitation.



      How?

    * The immediate, short-term goal is to choose and buy own land
    * Between current temporary camps, the base's 🔗stuff is in storage
    * Focus is on off-the-grid temporary architecture: hexayurts / woodsheds / polytarp / DIY tents / dugouts / camouflage shelters / ..., with own renewable energy, water and food systems.

*** Come to CHT

Next camp: https://next.totalism.org .

But generally:

    * 🔗contact the base. If there is no ongoing Subseason, you have to set one up & tear it down yourself - see 🔗flocking.

    * Everything you need is here (full camping gear for >10 people, diesel generator, solar, tools, network equipment, etc). More info on equipment: 🔗stuff.

    * The base is open to everyone (not only computer programmers)! >200 people have stayed at the base, with ~5-10 averages, and 15 maximums.

    * The Lanzarote island has a well-connected airport in Arrecife.

    * A flight from EU should be 30-100€, check Skyscanner



[ img:https://totalism.org/pics/databox_subfinance.png|200px] (Historic 30-day costs per person)

    Economy: Mutualism - Communism

Costs of imported goods and maintenance are shared as expenses.
Additionaly the investment tax & donations are spent on new things - see 🔗ordering

The base minimizes dependence on money, and so the need to do work for money, and so maximizes independence. Costs of life are ~ 100€/week per person (400€/month) and this is for everything (place to stay, food, power, water, tools and investments, etc). The remainder can be earned as part of the 🔗coop. There is a limited chance for a starving rate (if you are broke, unemployed, and break nothing) going <300€/month.

The space owns 🔗stuff and tools that is shared and can be used by anyone.
Currently buying: 🔗ordering.

If you have work, please consider a donation: 🔗donate.

For much more accounting details, see 🔗subfinance.



[ img:https://totalism.org/poster.png|550px]

    Where? Why? What?

The base was originally started in Lanzarote, Canary Islands (wiki, map), a UNESCO protected 40x20km Spanish island 100km West off Africa. It seemed a good idea to spend winters living in a constant 20°C average climate, with year-long ocean swimming.

Canonical hackerspace design says that "|people shouldn't ever sleep there", but hackbases take the ethos a step further. Hackerspaces are only hobbyist places, while hackbases aim to be fully integrated institutions, reinventing the basic ways to live & work.
You won't need regular paid work nearly as much. Life beyond nuclear families in rented apartments you can never afford to buy, and work for hierarchical for-profit corporations (startups etc), by rediscovering old counter-culture recipes and exploring new patterns in architecture, agriculture and information technologies; random psychedelia parties, and exploring nature. Basically, like in 1972, but with an industrial model that's not selling sea shell jewelry.

The long term plan is to develop recipes for self-sufficiency with means of open technology, get rid of money-dependence for a good life, that can be generally used.

If you want to come around just get a cheap flight. Anyone can stay here on a micro-budget, build up and use the lab and workshop, co-curate the e-archive of books, films and music, hang out, focus on your projects, and connect them into the general theory/practice of the space, plus whatever's specifically going on then. Includes great local food, the weather and the nature (ocean, volcanoes and desert). See https://next.totalism.org.

Equipment wise, see 🔗stuff. The base has everything you need to live and work here: basic electronics/DIY/hardware tools, collection of random stuff and materials to hack, internet access and independent LAN with selfhosted local services. People donate more new stuff all the time.

The space has hosted over 150 people so far.

♪ The hackbase is EU's second-most southernmost and westernmost hackerspace ↙ ↙ ↙ ↙
♪ Similar to hacker camps (like OHM2013 and CCC Camp) but less flashy and more permanent
Current weather is awesome
♪ Please bring cool 🔗stuff we are 🔗ordering
♪ Guerrilla food growing; plan going large scale with equal parts permaculture and cybernetics
♪ Biggest influences are Wiki🔗Ted_Nelson and Wiki🔗Alexander_Bogdanov
♪ All pages on this site are open-editable Etherpads (see bottom of page!)
♪ Maybe we can have camels in the future
