I've been dreaming of a programmer commune

A story that showed up today on Hacker News made me quite excited! It showed how a commune can be quite efficient and enjoyable to participate in. The numbers I was most excited about:

Weekly labor quota of 35 hours. Actual worked hours 26.8 per person per week.

Food costs of $135 per person per month

Healthcare costs of $686 per person per year

Boy would I be interested in something like this! Though, I'd like to have people put in a bit less time coding and a bit more time in contemplative practice.

What about you?
