A group of college nerds came together collectively at the UC Berkley
campus in the 70’s and ushered one of the most technologically important
inventions of the modern age…fully functional personal computing.  Fueled
by their desire to figure out problems and impress their friends, these
students and enthusiasts worked hard and for long periods of time to crack
the problems of computing.  Their club was called Homebrew, and the ethic
was sharing and open-sourcing.

I am currently working on applying such an ethic and also provide some
insights in how to apply open-source to permaculture design.  The sheer
power and swiftness of computers makes them well-suited to creating scaled
basemaps which can be easily traded, shared, and printed for various uses.
