Liam Kurmos is founder of the Astralship hackbase project in Snowdonia, Wales. Launched as Astralship.org in January 2017, the project has been converting a 19th century Welsh chapel into a hacker pirate ship.
The Hackbase Revolution
This talk looks at the hackbase movement and its potential to change the world by building a new economy through hacking and co-living. Hackbases are residential hackerspaces, of which there are currently only a few in Europe. Liam will look at the challenges faced by hackbases from the experience of the Astralship hackbase in Wales, and will consider the possibility of building local transition economies through a network of decentralised communities for co-living, co-learning, and co-creating real value.
