    I feel I am definitely lacking in the knowledge department when it comes to seasteading. I think the most important thing to starting off in seasteading is a good bank of knowledge, really knowing engineering and the ocean inside and out.

    So… I was looking around and I think this forum needs a good source page (websites, books) on things pertaining to seasteading.

    Please post good sources on:

    Ocean Maps

    Engineering

    Meteorology

    Agriculture

    Marine Agriculture

    Marine Biology

    Chemistery

    Alternative Energy

    Ocean Politics

    etc….

    and maybe I can compile and organize all the books and websites based on category.

    If you haven’t done so already, you could read the Seasteading book and have a look at its references: http://seasteading.org/seastead.org/book_beta/section_index.html

    Lots of great info in there.

    Amazon is a good place to start for books. Search for naval architecture, ocean/marine engineering, whatever you need to know. I recommend reading the reviews of textbooks before buying them, since they’re often very helpful, and can help avoid paying good money for books that are either way over your head or outdated or just poorly written. You can also download literally thousands of gigs of e-books on science stuff through torrent sites (isohunt, piratebay, etc.). You can even find instructors solutions manuals for some on there. Just be sure not to download anything that may be illegal, like stuff on terrorism, or copyrighted material.

    A few good ones off the top of my head:

    Great Science Textbooks DVD Library (torrents)
    Marine Engineering E-books (torrent)
    Engineering 01, 02, and 03 (torrents)
    Physics Complete (torrent)
    Chemistry Complete (torrent)
    Renewable Energy from the Ocean (book, expensive and hard to find, but seems to be the most comprehensive book on OTEC technologies)

    Those alone contain more than anyone could go through in a lifetime.
