I submitted an application for Noisebridge to build and host a geodesic
dome tea house.
Asked around the space last night and got positive "yeah, I'll help!"
responses from joyti, mari, and even jeffrey! Slack also got some good
input on this.
Anyone want to contribute funds to make this happen? A rough back of the
tequila stained napkin calculation suggests around $800 to put together a
big enough dome, then more investment in sitting pillows, tea kettles, etc
beyond the $800.
