Brian Cox:

"What more do you want?

The ingredients in our body were assembled in the hearts of long dead stars over billions of years... and have assembled themselves spontaneously into temporary structures that can think and feel and explore. And those structures will decay away at some point. And in a very far future there will be no structures left. So there we are, we exist in this very little window were we can observe this magnificent universe.

somehow managed to miss out on one of the most exciting 'hacks' demonstrated during #35c3 : the rental housing syndicate in Germany.

These are collectively owned buildings with provisions against speculation. The organization is also involved in co-financing other similar housing projects.
