Hi, o Bom Dia, ou Bonjour, ;)

Been on the page and last update is 2013... Huge program you got there !

I'm dreaming of a sponsor or work and I'm a good teacher imho. Speaking 
4 languages, I'm 44 years old. [1]

Soooo. I can teach 3D-print (and already did) with open-hardware 
3D-Printers [2].

Talking about empowerment of the poor : Open-source hardware and coding 
sounds awesome. I'm in. I can teach coding on C, C++, Php, SQL, 
Javascript, and various other cool "tricks" like 3D in canvas (webGL). [3]

Buuuuut, I'm actully totally broke and in south-portugal. I wanted to 
make a tour of hackerspaces but got no budget for it. So I'm ready to 
come work for you and students there, then I'll go travel.

Would it be possible to pay the air-plane ticket and host me for the 
time of the "mission" ? I'm actually close to Lisbon.

I don't follow any protocol by answering to you like that and I hope 
it's ok for you to answer to the list also. Thanks to do the same so 
others will get your answer to my crazy question.

I run several websites and been working as a freelance like "for ever" 
1997. ;)

You can call me on the phone of course and I'm sending my number in a 
private e-mail.

btw, I am OK with the 4 points of your e-mail, and, there's no such 
thing like "digital cooperative", we can make a pure "cooperative" or 
non-profit .org foundation.

"as is")

Sincerly yours,

PS: sorry I'm not signing this electronically. got to much to do right 
now and other priorities than going back to my PGP notes. I'm not very 
fan of encryption because it's used in times of war normally...... One 
thing is sure : If I come to CA, I'll bring my rollerskates. ;D
