Food Hacking Base and Dancing Drops are groups of people interested in food and beverage hacking bringing together ancient knowledge of foods&beverage preparation, today’s scientific understanding with the technology of tomorrow. Our goals are to improve the quality of human life together with our connection with nature.
This tour will be bringing together people deeply involved in computer sciences and technologies with people focused on healthy lifestyle which is in harmony with nature. Both of these communities are highly advanced in their fields and for years we believe and cherish the fruits of their collaboration, you are welcome to join this adventure!
Program and benefits
We are going to provide set of courses and workshops on the topics of fermentation and food&beverage hacking promoting these concepts in the local communities. Our activities are aimed on both improving the awareness of the topic, getting people involved and help the local groups becoming more active and productive. The benefits of these activities are many both on the local scale where they strengthen the knowledge and society connections and on the global level, where they help to connect people interested in similar subjects and which they can further develop under the open source principles. You can help us to make this happen by contributing to our cause, you should especially consider our perks of "experimental incubator prototype" and "food hacking base at your place" which are likely to impact you and your community most.
The outcomes of the project
The impact of this project will be both on the local level in the hackerspaces and it's communities and on international level through the main hacker events in the field. During this tour we will connect with many people and communities building therefore a social network which will allow for a more efficient collaboration on projects in the field of food&beverage hacking. By making the local communities more aware and involved we will impact the global community especially on above mentioned international events where we will continue to be present with more resources. We believe that for example on the next 31c3 congress in December 2014 we will be able to set up bases for a future food, beverage and bio hacking department which will hugely impact both the participants on this event but also setting a new standard for other events of this type. We have laid a solid foundations for this to happen both on the OHM2013 hacker camp and recently at 30c3.
How to support
To support us financially will be very helpful and we would really appreciate it, please consider bitcions options too. However based on our experience it is the community, positive references and spreading the word around is what makes the projects happen. We would like to ask you if you can try to help us in this manner and promote what we do mentioning our activities to your community and friends, more info is below.
