Let's talk about real estate for a moment.
Last year, we acquired land.
Land, like creatures, cannot be owned, only taken care of for a while.
This land is high-desert badlands, with environmental factors like the double-digits-below-zero winter cold, water scarcity, and the lack of a centralized power grid.
This winter, we're focusing on software for the #darkPi hardware, and formalizing the group governance as is becomes more than just a circle of friends.

- If you write LaTeX good, we need you.
- If you want to collaborate or integrate with your project, talk to us.
This is an open call for aid towards building an intersectional place of safety.

The intent, and goal, is to start housing people as soon as possible.
The raw statistics of the housing crisis underscores the need for more houses, faster and cheaper, but the real estate market is chasing the tech money bubble, ignoring the rising homeless as gentrification and inflation forces people into the street.
As an engineer, my goal, my plan, my focus is on automating the heavy lifting out of building sustainable, human-centric, robust housing.
Technology makes so much possible, but while making rent looms over everyone's head, nobody can get ahead.
Renting should be a path to home ownership, if it's got to exist at all.
If you Template:l/pub me with your efforts, your communication, your signal boosting, or your hard-earned money, you are helping create homes for the financially marginalized.
