hey jerry!

interesting question...

i posted a similar call just a couple of months ago. we are running a 
community page for hackbusses.

---> http://hackbus.info

This site is a community tool for the evergrowing armada of hackbusses.

We need a root movement of doing strange things with hardware which 
was not intended (aka "hacking") because only when we use things in 
ways other than they were planned can something new arise.

Hackbusses (or mobile hacklabs or hack vehicles) are a low-threshold 
way of bringing the culture of hacking to the people. They are 
migratory learning and teaching units, taking the talented hackers 
and their ideas out of middle-class urban centers and bringing them 
to people who might not otherwise be aware of the possibilities 
available to them! Let's have a good time n tha hood! And let's drive 
to the villages!

We follow a long tradition of this nomadic approach to bring 
self-empowerment to the people. These units can be everywhere. And 
they should be everywhere. Start one yourself!

we presented the site at hope in nyc and recently had an event at 
mozilla's drumbeat festival in barcelona.

we already have a couple mobile hack units registered, but there are 
many more. we just need to spread the word.

all the best
