Hacker Beach hackers are sad, when it's not January. So we kind of want to have a shared house to live and work in for other times of the year.
Apparently we're not alone: https://twitter.com/hackerbeach/status/702936619679145984
Use this page for collecting notes on anything from other people's examples to potential locations and properties.
- Shared ownership, with hackers as (equal?) holders of it
- Should we form a company/non-profit to own and manage it
- Permanent residents vs temporary residents (how long can/should people stay?)
- Income source: Airbnb when nobody is using it?
Considerations for location
- Should be easily (but not too easily) reachable
- Decent internet access
- Warm weather in northern hemisphere winter months
- Colombia (Santa Marta, Medellín, ...)
- Budapest, Hungary
- Penang, Malaysia
- Gozo, Malta
Italy Tourism Agency
"Italy is giving away 103 run-down properties, including villas, inns, and castles for free. The country’s State Property Agency expects anyone who gets a free castle (or any other of the 103 objects) to commit to restoring it so it can be used as a tourist destination. Whether the property becomes a hotel, spa, restaurant, or something else is up to the new owner to decide."
The deadline for the first round of properties/applications is June 26, 2017.
