==What is a nomad base?==
A '''nomad base''' is a shared living space where all inhabitants can feel like hosts or in other words: 'at home'. It is a place where the inhabitants - how temporary they may stay - feel at home, do their 'thing' and can learn and share at the same time with the other people who live there. A shared culture of '''participation''' in common activities (household and events for example) as well as mutual care among inhabitants and visitors are highly necessary for these spaces to remain [[sustainable]].
The values of [[sustainable sustainability]], [[sharing]] and openness are central. A nomad base does not exist for the sake of financial profit.
A nomad base can be a [[shared living]] space (like a house, an [[eco-village]] or [[intentional community]]) rented, owned or [[squatted]] by one or more individuals who decide to also share this space with [[nomads]]. It could also be a temporary space on a temporary location like some piece of (squatted) land. Each location might have their own specific culture, aspiration, focus, terms of living, minimum or maximum length of stay, intentions, and so on.

What are characteristics that 'define' a nomadbase? What does a place needs to have to be labelled as such?
* Open for nomads
* Shared living?
==The limits of nomad bases==
''See the [[Talk:Nomadbase|discussion page]] for ongoing brainstorming''
Work is being done on a [[nomad base manifest|manifest]] that can be publicized in various cities through [[hospitality exchange]] networks and forums, inspiring and inviting other "houses" to join a nomad-base network or inspire other individuals that are already using their houses as nomad bases to connect with each other.
The intention of this manifesto is not to set any specific rules or definitions of what a nomad base should be, but describe certain potential properties/tendencies/intentions of nomadic bases, the kind of dynamics likely to develop in such bases, etc.
==Nomadbase Network==
A Nomadbase-network would be a network of nomads and nomadbases: a network of nomads, long term travelers, skillsurfers, etc, with places and bases that are open for shared living. See also [[Nomadbase-Network]] and [[Models_of_Nomadic_Networks]].
Nomadbases could also stay in touch with each other, exchange on ideas, processes and experiences.
=== How to reach potential new bases? ===
* Go and meet them. Personal contact is most important.
* Nomadbase hunt: Keep your eyes open when you're travelling, go and check potential places. You (and any other nomad) go to a city without known [[nomadbase]] and try to find open places/people.
* Recycle the house of grandma.
* For each profile: List of places you like. Get notification when new nomad base is being created there.
* Some communities with good potential look for members on mainstream search tools (Germany: WG-gesucht). We may find some interesting things there.
* Collect good occasions of flats in a wiki, where people that hear of a good deal but cannot take it can make it known to those that are looking.
* list the flat-finding ressources per city.
There might be many nomad-bases around the world, though these are not so much connected with each other yet. To help creating a network of these spaces, the website [http://nomadbase.org nomadbase.org] was started January 2009. To make new connections between houses, spaces and nomadic travelers, a [[she|conference]] is taking place in Berlin from 20 of November of 2009 to 2nd of December: [[SHE goes MAD]].
* January 2009 [http://nomadbase.org/ nomadbase.org] is in an alpha stage.
* August 2009 [https://we.riseup.net/nomadbase Nomadbase] is now a group on [[crabgrass]] to discuss the feature-list and on [https://code.brueckenschlaeger.de/projects/nomads/ redmine] to discuss code-development. Discussion currently focuses on using a branch of [[crabgrass]].
* November 2009: An unconference about nomad-bases: [[SHE goes MAD]]
* December 2009: An unconference about nomad-bases in USA: SHE NY http://sharewiki.org/en/She_nyc
