  • Host CS/HC. If we have a place where things are happening anyway, it should be second nature to participate/start something. A lot of these people are used to being very open, and we could provide a platform for sharing. Even if they come just to crash, I would be very happy to have them talk for an hour. The things to see thing (!) sound good. We could have a book that gets filled in by the surfers, Lonely Wiki? A giant map of berlin would make a great wall adornment.
  • Skills exchange/transfer. For sure, as we talked a lot about workshops. Maybe we should encourage people with the same skills to attend, so the ones organising can learn too? We could do some small ones (2/3 hours), like how to Couchsurf (hosting, surfing, travelling with a very small backpack, interesting historical routes).
  • Synergetic working
    Like the Jelly project. It's not as much colaborating at the same time, as much as being around people to ask feedback. I did this at home with some friends, and it is actually very productive for all parties.
  • Scavenging for food, clothes, fruniture. We could have a free market!
  • Our own version of Ted Talks. It could be as easy as mailing somebody with an interesting dissertation and inviting him, or just push a surfer onto our stage.

        In short, instead of the will to power, the will to understand eachother, and experiment with being together.
