[hackerspaces] Heads up: Int'l Hackers In Residence Program

Hi to all,
The agricultural focus sounds around the lines of what we have been discussing with Greg from Cali recently and what the Food Hacking Base (fhb) project is partly about (in the formation process). Greg is working on bio reactors/incubators (which I'm into too), being also involved in agriculture. I'm especially after fermentaions, slow food and combining that with technology and science (food&beverage hacking) and due to the fact that I'm living now in South Korea on an island called Jeju, creating some type of "residency" with some basic and cheep housing and most importantly facilities from a dirty workshop, electronic lab, computer lab, fermentation lab of course is more and more what I would like to initiate here. However in this case it would be rather people coming here for specific projects (theirs or ours) (or less specific :-) hanging around should be an option too), there is an artistic residence in the village already so people are familiar
 with the concept, but minimum of hackers.

I would be particularly interested to talk to the people who may be interested in this aspect of  the hacker residence program, which I think is very nice umbrella or "spear" to make similar projects reality around the globe. It would be than more around the line of smaller hackerspace in the countryside, focused on specific projects with people coming and joining them/doing their own and also just hanging around.

Sincerely from Jeju,

Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck

It's a great idea.  Thanks for sharing.

I have a bit more radical idea: hacker lofts and sustainable
agriculture programs to gain self-sufficiency (cf. permaculture).
Partner with something like the Ingress on-line community, but start
staking out poorly utilized spaces by actually planting seeds to take
back the land to be self-sufficient.
