Conference Wiki Signup

I made a wiki signup page for the conference (October 10th in Burlingame, CA, USA).  So far it’s just me on there, so please add yourselves :).  Also, we could use a couple more people to help organize and run the conference, if you are interested please email conference@seasteading.org.

This is not a "sit around and listen to a few presenters" sort of conference. Instead, we’re going to have a bunch of small workshops where groups brainstorm about solutions to some of the challenges we face, research those solutions, and come up w/ recommendations.  Examples include: Geographic location, Business plan for seastead resort, Transportation to/from seastead, Marketing/PR (making our ideas sticky), etc.  You can suggest more workshop topics on the wiki.

The cost for the conference will be $195, including food (but not a hotel room).  This is our cost for the space, food, and equipment (projectors, internet access).

We’ll be posting a discount code for rooms at Embassy Suites, as well as information about cheaper hotels within walking distance.
