The Rise of the Rural Hacker | Hackaday
But then the world of the rural Hacker began to expand. The technological hubs that so many rural hackers had migrated to began to connect the world. Young Hackers could learn to program (as I learned C) from textfiles posted on BBSs and exchange knowledge linking national communities. Shortly after that the Internet came bringing its Eternal September. Hackers across the world, regardless of location could communicate. The finest example of this model is perhaps Hacker Farm a Hacker community centered around a small village in rural Japan. At present 4 families have relocated to the area with more on the way, and the occasional long term visitor. At Hacker Farm members share technical skills, tools, and co-working spaces equipped not only with electronic and scientific test equipment, but also tools used to renovate local abandoned structures for use by Hacker Farm members.

As Factories Fade, Rural District Builds Makerspace to Fill Talent Gaps | EdSurge News
Coincidentally, as part of another role I had with the district to develop relationships with the business community, I was organizing a field trip to a tech company. At the time, I was in the process of developing a program called “The Tech Pipeline” that allowed local, fast-growing technology companies to connect with prospective talent in the community through our schools. These companies were eager for qualified young candidates to fill positions. Though somewhat ironically, the local unemployment rate was soaring and kids were abandoning the region in search of work.

Clearly, there was a disconnect.

Csak nézzük, ahogy telik az a kurva élet – Tett – Medium
Az egyetlen párt, akiknek a kampánya, úgy-ahogy a lokális problémákra épül, az a Jobbik. És ha csak a nácik tudják megszólítani az embereket, akkor nagy a baj.

“A vidéki ember tudja, hogy leszarják. Te is, meg a politikusok is.” | 24.hu
Negyven százalék maradt otthon, mert már beleszarik. Mert nem hisz el semmit. Mert a kisvárosi meg a falusi ismeri a jelöltet még abból az időkből, mikor az a homokozóban ült és kevergette a pisakását, és előbb tudja, mennyit fog lopni, mint a jelölt.
