Hi to all,
Many thanks to Mitch for mentioning the Food Hacking Base (fhb) project here.
Most likely you have met us on previous hacker events or you god a workshop of ours at your local hackerspace, for the ones who did not - fhb is an open platform for people/hackers who are interested in experimenting with food&beverages and coming together on a big hacker events like CCC conferences, camps as a kind of family, group or village pick your own. More info here
It is a special time for us now because after two years of being active on bigger events and more or less “dormant” in the meanwhile, we are starting to move towards lets say “permanent continuous” activity. We have registered our domain foodhackingbase.org and most importantly for the list and this moment we started our first crowd sourcing campaign at Indiegogo
Yes, we will serve food at OHM however there are several other goals which for example are:
- serve as a food hacking hub, providing as much open kitchen/lab to people who are interested in experimenting
- place for donation based workshops on various related topics (no one turned away for lack of funds) like for example matelade
- building washing facility and most of all
- hexayurt based cold room which is the big project of this event
There are tons of other activities which are directly related to “who is in”, so matelade is going to be big, so will be mate sodas and wide variety of probiotic drinks. As usually we are big on vegan staff, so that is going to stay, another bit crazy for many is our “Kombucha cosmopolita” project where we try to hack a worldwide collection of probiotic kombucha culture SCOBY’s from all around the world creating super rich “Kombucha cosmopolita” (yes I’m behind that one :-)).
Anyway this is just a short overview of what we are after. As you can see we do food but actually the “catering” is rather limited to people who are really into our staff, vegans or people with special dietary restrictions, plus as on previous events whoever is interested from the Hackers on a Plane project which is in again. If you are after the food in I would say restaurant style (plus fun’s of beer) you should really check out on Milliways they will be there as always and by the way their crowdsourcing campaign
They are struggling with their fundraiser and are trying to make an awesome project happen.
I hope that you will find our project of Food Hacking Base interesting, if you can please promote, support and of course pop in at OHM 2013!
So let's have a nice OHM2013 together.
Sincerely for fhb,
Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck
PS: What can you do with a cold room? Swap a hot mate against a cool one, cool your beer, swap beer with others and taste local beers from all over. We try to make this happen, and see how it works out. We really would love to have a big cold room for all!
