    Hi everybody,

    On 10/22/2011 I posted the following under ” Seasteading Outpost: Belize” thread:

    {How about starting a new forum named

    “Seasteading projects” or “Actual seasteading projects” or “Ongoing (current?) seasteading projects”

    I think it will benefit everybody, including TSI. Members who work on actual projects can post their projects there. The new members and/or the guests can visit the forum and get an idea of what is going on, what has been achieved so far and what is actually done towards seasteading by the members themselves. Thus more people can choose to join TSI in order to be part of a certain project, the one that fit their needs best. I think it will encourage participation, innovation, and therefore growth and advancement of the seasteading cause.

    And, if TSI would bring some of those grants back for those projects that they consider to be most likely to succeed due to best concept, planning, participation, etc, the better. I am talking about actual projects, privately financed by the participating members and under developmpent as potential grants beneficiaries.

    My 2 cents,…}

    I would like to hear your oppinions regarding this idea, and if a positive feedback, we can officialy ask TSI if they would like to start such forum.

    We do have people here actually working on seasteading related projects, but they are spread out under different forums. For example:

    • SOBIZ is under “IRL GTGs” (whatever that is:)
    • Seasteadin Outpost Rincon del Mar Columbia Caribbean is under “Feedback for TSI”
    • Bergstead Kiwi – 1:35 scale is under “Engineering”
    • The Floathaven update thread! is under “General Chat”
    • etc, etc

    To me, it would make a lot of sense to centralize all those projects under one forum named “Ongoing Seasteading Projects”, for example, or a similar name, up to TSI. (with or without the grants there :)

    What do you guys think?

    IRL GTGs – i think that means “in real life get-togethers”

    like I give a rat’s ass what IRL….means:)

    What I care about is your oppinion regarding this new forum, duuuuuuude.

    A Yes or No would suffice. You don’t have to write a novel or split atoms :)

    – Um i think u are right Ocean. when i first started my bergs they were only artwork, later on they became “engineering” projects, soon they might be ready for real life use on the ocean (crossing my fingers). in that case there should maybe be a another forum branch dedicated to setting an “organizational / action plan”. so yeah, not just with bergsteads but for all the different “action plans” there probably should be a dedicated forum branch.

    it means the movement is reaching a new level of maturation.

    Area where real progress is made would be great.

    IRL GTGs is intended for meetings of various sorts, ranging from a formal conference to a group meeting casually at a restaurant.

    There was one additional person who spoke up yesterday in favor of a new forum for seasteading projects, so I actually emailed TSI about it last night, and a couple of hours ago I got an email back approving it.

    The forum name, as requested by TSI, will be Active Seasteading Projects.

    I will set it up on Saturday.

    It is intended for actual active projects where there is a commitment to a plan of action that has a definite goal involving living on water.

    Anything else belongs elsewhere.

    So the two new Seastead Outpost threads qualify (and I will move them to the new forum after I create it).

    As I see it, shredder’s threads about his models don’t qualify (unless there is a group of really little people who are going to actually live in them). elspru’s dinghy likewise doesn’t qualify.

    (I’m not in any putting down either of those projects, but as I see it, they don’t fit the criteria for which the new forum is intended.)

    Discussion about the design of full-size bergsteds wouldn’t qualify, nor a discussion of general manufacturing concerns, nor a general discussion of how to fund them, find customers, etc.

    A discussion about an actual committed plan to actually build full-size bergsteds that someone could live in on the water would qualify.
