The penny farthing on the website was a nice coincidence
We are going to a penny farthing family day in Adelaide tomorrow
Adelaide is not a big city.
There are some odd industries here though.
There is a penny farthing manufacturer
There are some groups who take apart bicycles and make them into
either tall bikes with multiple frames or very long low bikes fro
riding in drains.
In some ways this kind of recycling making feels very open source.
There is a computer recycling group called itshare which uses linux,
they have been meeting with the bicycle mashup folks
and have a common interest in trebuchets and making from found objects.
Kat Jungnickel is doing work on the social and private spaces needed
for make culture
she worked in adelaide with the wireless community group airstream,
and kat is the person who made the connection with the bike mashup
people.Her blog about wireless, backyards, and nonlinear phd options
is full of the kinds of make culture which happen
when you have some space and are not afraid of mess.

There are good private spaces in Adelaide for make culture but not so
much space where communities can make.
Are there places for others on the list where communities can make
mess and create?
Is curating open source different because youre curating space for
mess rather than for polished finished things?

Janet
