looking forward to brainstorm collectively on how we may describe certain characteristics of a nomad base.
I imagine such description, ( a nomad base manifesto ? ) can then be publicized in various cities through hospitality networks and forums, inspiring and inviting other "houses" to join a nomadbase network. ( or inspire other individuals that are already using their houses as nomad bases to connect with each other ).
I feel such brainstorming would not 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, ...

What a nomad base is not
Should there be any restriction? This section is just questioning.
A nomad base is like a hackerspace, but you can sleepthere too...
Can a rural community of hippies that don't have internet be a nomadbase?
Can a nomadbase organise lucrative event (dinner, sell alcohol)
- No financial condition to participate. Donations are acceptable. (what's about minimum donations?)
- For non-necessary controversial items like alcohol, it is ok to demand financial contribution.
- If nomadbase cannot be lucrative, what is the position of eco-friendly farms and cooperatives in the network?
- necessity to explode the difference between lucrative and supportive events/contributions.
Can nomads be asked to work in exchange of accommodation and food? if yes, with what extent?
Can nomads be asked to contribute by buying food?
In substance: how can a nomad base sustain itself?
Can a hierarchical network of bases become a nomad base or collaborate with it? (See hobos: more discussion/understanding needed)
Do we have positions regarding drugs (heavy/light) and alcohol? Or is every base free to decide?
Can local homeless people live in a nomad base.
- This kind of up to each base. It goes a bit against the "nomad" tag, but hey...
