Hi guys,

Its been a while since ive posted here. Anyway, HSP is atm being negotiated with DARPA. A group of us wrote the grant on google docs. Right now me and Jerry are doing the initial negotiation through maui makers, our local hackerspace. You can join our mailing list, we are a small group with big ambitions. Right now we are favoring an organization that forms competitions on the makerlevel, Pre-xprize/ COTS style. Between 10-1k prizes awarded to projects that win crowdfunded projects. So kickstarter for space/sustainability projects, with cash/equipment prizes. Its still very nebulous if you are interested join the conversations.
