i refrained from making a group on facebook for a list of reasons longer than my arm -- a list which grew even longer with the recent ipo -- but i am sitting on, still, a small collection of incomplete laptop and desktop computers and also looking to hold workshops on computing and on building solar ovens for dirt cheap. i've also got some halfcooked projects i haven't gotten around to finishing (living in a collective house where everyone had different ideas of what we'd do with the space makes it kind of hard to stick to a plan) -- solar-heated stirling engines from old soup cans, diy hydroponics.
anyone who's down to take part, do let me know. and if you've got more ideas, let's get together and imagine shit. at the moment, physical meetings might be difficult for some of us, however this forum is a perfect place to link information and share thoughts until we have a more permanent physical space.
