Who are these heroes and hobos?

You are.

If you are a writer, a poet, an independent magazine, or a small press, you are a hero -- and a hobo in the best sense of the word. You wander through this institutional wilderness seeking beauty in the word and on the page, and you've written your own maps and set out alone or with a few friends and just a bindle... but no longer.

HaH offers you membership in a club you *do* want to join, despite the fact it would have you. In fact, it's a club you're already in! We've already seen how social movements are accelerated and empowered by the integration of new, socially oriented technology and open source/peer to peer philosophy into traditional activism and community organizing on the ground.

By pooling our actions into a streamlined intelligence, we reduce waste/redundancy, and refuse the scarcity economy. By pooling resources, we insist on and produce viability, we recycle, reduce and reuse -- our minds, our currency, our time and energy -- and share in a new kind of cooperative institution built on a sound, network empowered business model.

Local and offsite membership levels are available for individuals, publications, and independent presses.
