This will be a relaxing area for everyone, with a tea house and (meta-)datalove, where all Hackers will be welcome to relax, discuss and strategize. Let's take back control of technology, rebuild our communication infrastructure, fix Network Neutrality, Freedom of communication, etc. around a nice cup of tea!
Delicious tea will flow (hopefully) all day and all night long, for free, for everyone to share in a cozy space. Tea and its ritual enable warm relaxation, clearing the mind for strategic thinking, project planning, and enjoying being together. What better setup for rethinking the techno-political interactions of our times? ;)
This analog "hack" of a hacker congress will enable everyone to discover a bit of the vast tea culture (hacking plants for thousands of year!), also by becoming a "tea-master" and enabling everyone around the table to enjoy the tea flow.
Among the delicious leaves will be:
- Chinese Green tea (Lung Jing - Dragon's Pit)
- Chinese Black tea (Yunnan)
- Indian Black tea (Assam)
- Fermented Chinese black tea (Pu Er)
- Blue tea (Oolong - Tie Guan Yin)
- Smoked black tea (Tarry Souchong, and a half-smoked white tips)
- Yerba Mate
- An amazing Chinese fermented green tea
- A splendid, rare Japanese green tea
- A few leaves of a pan-yong...
Also some non-cafeinated, herbal teas will probably be available (no more Jiao Gu Lan :/ ), contributions needed! (see below)
Hacking (with) Care
The Tea House is part of the project "Hacking (with) Care" first started as a collaboration between masseuse Emily King, Jérémie Zimmermann and french NGO defending freedoms online La Quadrature du Net, and artists Anne Goldenberg and JBB at OHM 2013 in the Netherlands.
You may have met some of us before: at OHM, 30C3, LOOP, the Logan-CIJ Symposium. You might meet us again in the summer ;)
This year at 31C3, you can learn a self-care body routine from our video tutorial, massage each other, enjoy heart-warming, mind-sharpening cups of tea, and share thoughts on what could “hacking with care” mean and be for you... All at La Quadra'TeaHouse.
You can become a tea-master and help keep the tea flowing! You can also contribute with elements of deco/light and/or with delicious tea or other stuff made with love!
We badly need HERBAL, NON-CAFFEINATED tea! We are out of our delicious "Jiao Gu Lan" :/ Please favour local herbs/plants/flowers found in herborist or markets. We use loose tea rather than teabags.
planned workshops and sessions
To be determined soon : Massages, self-massages, brainwave hacking, "the right to be forgotten" and much more! <3
