Nomad Links

http://www.gonomad.com is aimed at a higher-budget non-sustainable crowd, but it has some fantastic links. Some of my favorites: - David Byrne (lead singer of The Talking Heads, "Burning Down the House" among other songs) talks about cycling in various cities all over the world. - Tips for living abroad with kids - Dead Goat Polo: National Sport of Kyrgyzstan http://www.gonomad.com/features/0911/kyrgyzstan-goat-polo.html !!

Nomad Hostel?

Just as farms, jam- or soap-manufacturers, tea houses, or bike shops can be turned into nomad bases, a hostel seems like a fantastic choice. Alex Rollin and I talked about how any of these nomad bases might be set up in such a way that people could: - live and pay - work, live and not pay - work more, live, get paid

Brainstorming away... Nomadbase structures

To understand what a nomadbase could be, we tried today to make an inclusive list of all sorts of places that potentially could be labelled as such. The list was directly added on the wiki [see list]. After listing all possible models of nomadic co-living, the discussion naturally went to other aspects of a nomadbase network, such as trust-metrics. Who decides who is a nomad, or what is a nomadbase? Will we work with a vouching system, or is it open for all? Different models were discussed of how a nomadbase network could look like. Would it be a closed network of several houses where our 'approved' nomads can live? Would it be an open network open for anyone to join? Or something in between?
