This weekend my daughter and I drove out into the middle of the Utah Mountains. Every now and then we’d see some gorgeous land for sale. Here’s a reconstruction of our musings:
“Wouldn’t it be lovely to buy a plot and build a little homestead? But I’d hate to be out here alone. And getting internet out here for one home sounds expensive.”
So my girl said I should just get some of my hippie friends to move out there with me.
“But I don’t have hippie friends.”
“What do you think Open Source is about?”
“Oh, you mean Tech hippies?”
“You could build a dot commune.”
I laughed. Seriously though, if anyone’s interested in the idea of building a techy oasis somewhere, with enough togetherness to be neighborly and enough space to be ourselves, too, let’s talk.
