That looks fantastic. I’m going to see if Manuel (Our Sci’s programmer based near Zurich) can come. It would be awesome for him to meet you guys.

PS who does your videos, you always make things look so cool :slight_smile:

@gbathree i would love to learn more about your recent hardware, and give it some testing during the upcoming months. both for the event in switzerland, aswell as more activities coming up in Yogyakarta, indonesia june-august.

@dusjagr tiny world! @gbathree and I are building a fully open scientific collaboration platform OurSci Web Application

Are you around for a chat some time @dusjagr?

let’s keep the discussion here and not on private chats.
but yes, of course i am aware and the goal of this and other projects is to work alongside with more networks, test each others hardware and approaches, bring us all together in cosy and inspiring environemtns, call it the GROLScH residency programme!

please let us know more about your recent work with our-sci.net


great work!! I really like your article on “An Open Strategy to build Soil Carbon”

You did a very inspiring start for the Mumus Sapiens Project, mega!
Heidy and Andreas, we would like to meet you on Rande-Lab at Sa. 5. and So. 6. May for developpingh new idees…
It’s always cool to dig in the ground : )


Great to hear! @baggenstos.rudolf !

make sure you reserve your participation on our campaign, and we can then use the funds to get food and drinks, aswell as materials to continue our collaborative research.
If you stay shorter and the two of you, just use a reward to together.

there will also be pre-retreat sessions in RandeLab through-out the month of April, starting over the easter weekend. we’ll do some first experiment and fix-up the house to host all the hackers and artists during the retreat in May.

Just added some solar powered light in the toilet with @owalkhoff

and putting a nice lamp on the Do-Nothing-Garden.
