Revision as of 01:19, 23 November 2009 by (talk) (What a nomad base is not)
Jump to: navigation, search


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, ...

I'm copying this to the discussion page and rewrite it in the article. guaka 21:26, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

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...
