This is the CHT#1 Lanzarote (Canary Islands/Spain/EU) live-in hackerspace / Hackbase. Buy a one-way cheap flight a month in advance, fly in and stay for a few days-weeks-months on the cheap (#openbudget). Quitting your fucking job and cancelling the rent is optional. Read the Common ground, mind-melt, focus on your things, connect them into the general theory/practice of the space, or whatever's specifically going on then. Eat well and look at the ocean / volcanoes. YEAH
CYBERHIPPIETOTALISM is a theoretical & practical counter-culture platform,
establishing a series of European hackbases: hacker live-in labs-residences.
CHT#1 has been running since December 2011 on Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
We thought it would be a good idea to spend a full winter hacking in a 20°C+, year-long ocean swimming climate.
The place has since become what you'd expect from a hackerspace (has a collection of electrojunk & a complex network topology), and has hosted dozens of people.
New October 2013:
Check out THE MANUAL for full details on CHT#1 Hackbase living.
There's an Arrivals C.I.Y. (check in yourself) section just before EOF.
Contra The_Roommate_Anti-Pattern: While other hackerspaces are just places to go to "in your spare time" or "after work", CHT overpowers the life-work dichotomy by also being a hip crashpad, and cooking nutritious food.
(Kind of like what the hippie communes did, but beyond 1972 this time.)
Integrating theory, technology research & development, and artistic tendencies, + living in the middle of all that, CHT is going for an "all-in" experimental platform, towards futuristic models of men-technology coexistence. Forget 20th century life & social practices, pretend it's 2027 and rock out.
 Open Residencies
CHT is an open space for visitors & accepting projects-residents. Crowd-governed and #openbudget to maximize quality & minimize expenses, you can fully subsist here for approximately 10-14€ daily / 300-400€ monthly contribution (food+stay, see details here). Which, yes, does mean it makes total sense for you to rent out your apartment and move here for a few months.
We are not full. Space is always available. Infinitely. #pods
The Lanzarote island has a well connected airport. Cheap flights available from everywhere in the EU. One way trip is 40-100€, if you ride share.
 Future spaces
CHT#2 should be set in Ljubljana or Berlin or Paris or Bristol or ?
We hope to have another one officially up by end of 2013.

♪ CHT#1 is European Union's both southernmost and westernmost hackerspace
♪ The space probably owns the most powerful computer on the island, Bartleby
♪ The house is a tower with 4 rooms and kind of 6 floors, if you choose to look at it that way
♪ Floor -1 is an underground pool we are fitting to be a multimedia tank
♪ Floor 3 is a terrace with an ocean view. We eat there & grow food on it.
♪ We're guerrilla gardening and want to do it at a large scale. #garduino
♪ We own a pizza oven and a have hacked the terrace electric grill plate to have 'Krazy' mode. Using Krazy mode can shut down half the houses's fuses
♪ On the edge of a desert, we repeat a 3mbit DSL internet from hippie friends. The WiFi antenna is made out of smoked salmon packaging
♪ We wish to be the first energy-independent hackerspace in the world (Note: I didn't check this)
♪ We have set a cockroach nest on fire and won
♪ The space owns a color laser printer, a tent, 2 electric guitars, 5 amplified sound systems, a 20 second delay pedal, and a 24 gear mountain bike with front suspension.
♪ But seriously, you can obviously do software and hardware hackin, electronics, home automation, music, food hacking, hacking the outdoors, theory, multimedia art, etc
