Two middle-aged people – Petros and Natalia. And their two dogs. And a bulletproof idea.
We lived in Warsaw and ran a small internet company. We’ve been hit by the crisis, just like others. It hit us so badly that we went totally bankrupt. As bankrupts we started looking around, searching for ideas, what to do next.
Suddenly it turned out that lots of people live “outside the system”. They manage without credit cards and without credits. They help each other and share their work. They create cooperatives.
There’s a whole big zone where you can find your place when the system spits you out. This is what has inspired us. This is where we’re heading to. We don’t want to reintegrate within the system. We are free and want to use our restored freedom for creating.
We’ve invented #FreeLab. It’s a sort of a hackerspace but intended to “serve” alternative groups. We want to create space where people can meet, learn new roles and get new (mostly technical) skills. We’re going to share what we’ve learned with everyone who’s interested in common issues.
It’s seems it’s going to be a beautiful adventure….
