Wigwams we want:

  • affordable DIY motor vehicles
  • a dirt-simple OS for practical use and reuse
  • tools/guides for "kit" homes that can be constructed from nearby materials, e.g. how to clear patch of forest and build cabin with lumber
  • a simple alternative to github, and maybe even git
  • tools for converting suburban sprawl into human-scale walkable infrastructure
  • simple/predictable query languages and databases (email me for ideas)
  • a simple, open search engine
  • scalable diy paper production and printing presses
  • expressive but small visual markup languages
  • kits/guides for making everyday clothes out of fabric and scraps
  • alternative to YouTube that smells more like podcasts than cryptocurrency (email me for ideas)


  • promote "slow tech" over hype
  • organize project landscape by goals
  • match talent quickly and effectively
  • sustainably fund unsexy infrastructure
  • keep projects on-schedule and within budget
  • maintain list of "open problems" in need of new wigwams


  • more wigwams
  • rss feed
  • more wigwam details
  • dedicated site
  • sorting/filtering?
  • detailed wigwam suggestions
  • learning resources
  • wigwam commit history stats
  • wigwam quality stats
