A Bold New Look for Seasteading.org

This morning, we launched our redesigned website with a bold new look to match our audacious vision, along with updated and revised content. The modern makeover fits in with our recent transition into “version 2.0” of the Institute, with our new executive staff and ambitious plans to add to the number of active seasteading business ventures in the next couple of years.

We’d like to highlight the new Students section, which details opportunities for college students to get involved in the seasteading movement through research and other projects, which will help enable early seasteading ventures. Many of the opportunities are also available for non-students, but we are encouraging our community to promote the program to any highly intelligent, motivated college students who might be looking to pick up a few extra credits for an independent study project or internship.

We believe that visitors to the new site will find it easier to navigate to the sections that they find most useful or interesting. Information is displayed in a more eye-catching, easier to digest manner, allowing our message to be perceived more clearly.

We’re still working out a few glitches (the research papers, for example, are still being uploaded to the new server), and we would appreciate any and all feedback on what’s working, and more importantly, what’s not. This includes broken or misdirected links, incorrect labels, and any other inconsistencies you might notice. Send all feedback to info@seasteading.org. Thanks in advance–we hope you like the new look!

Based on my experience, I think you’re going to have to use the “Lost your password?” link. As long as the email address on your account is good, you shouldn’t have any problem.

About submitting a business plan for Seastead: I don’t know, but you could follow this link:

“If you’re interested in volunteering, please send a resume and a self-introduction to volunteers@seasteading.org. Our volunteer recruiting process consists of one or more in-person or video interviews.”

Otherwise look through Contact and other items until you find something. It is not a huge organisation where ideas get lost, not just yet, so get your plan in quickly.

E-Newsletter doesn’t seem to be working. Old links don’t seem to work either. Can’t find the old blog entries either. That’s sad because lot’s of links to this site have been linked around internet and now they don’t work anymore.

I’m just a volunteer so I don’t know all of the details, but I don’t think all of the blog entries have been converted yet.

Unfortunately I don’t think there’ s much that can be done about the differences in the links. The upgrade involved a change to completely different software.
