London Seasteaders?

I’ve decided I’m going to [a conference](http://www.dur.ac.uk/ibru/conferences/sos/) in Durham (NE UK, close to Scotland) April 1-3. I will probably hit London for a couple days afterwards. I would very much like to give one or more seastead talks while I am in London – or at the very least, do a meetup at a pub. Anyone in London who’d be interested in helping me arrange something? Email talks@seasteading.org.

Seasteading quotes

We’re looking for quotes for the front page that capture the essence of seasteading. Things like:

* “If you want to build a ship, do not drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
* One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. – André Gide
* I am interested in politics so that someday I will not have to be interested in politics. – Unknown

Please comment here with your ideas.

Need help generating speaking engagements and seasteading socials

I will be making a number of trips in 2009 for TSI-related business and speaking engagements, and I need your help to maximize the number of people I can meet and reach on each of these trips. There are two major ways you can help:

1. Get a [talk](http://www.seasteading.org/learn-more/talks) or speaking engagement for me. Groups that might be interested include futurists, transhumanists, libertarians, and engineering & architecture departments at local colleges or universities.
2.
