    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Mark Boudreau and I am the editor of Digital Rights Watch, a website that currently tracks and aggregates news related to digital rights around the world.

    My interest in Seasteading is tied to my interest in Digital Rights and the concept of data havens, and whether a seastead could in fact be ideally positioned to create such a facility.

    Of course that is not the only reason I am interested in Seasteading and right now it is fascinating to track the feasibility of the concept but the data haven concept in relation to seasteading is of particular interest and if anybody can point me to any work done in this regards would be appreciated..

    Thanks.

    The first thing that came to my mind was HavenCo and SeaLand, discussed in this video from The Seasteading Institute’s 2009 Conference:

    Best place to store data is on ceramic tiles, in underground caves.

    There are some submarine data-havens by the U.S. military, titanium hulls.

    Though there are potentially even more deep_underground_military_bases.

    On the water it’s likely we’ll develop a distributed internet, with potentially some distributed backup, due to the mobile nature of seasteads, people would have to keep copies of data they liked, as the source may be nomadic, and so only in range part of the time.

    Another interesting thing with long-term data-storage is the possibility of making fossils,

    sediment is constantly raining down on the seafloor, so anything left there for sufficient amount of time, can eventually fossilize. The seafloor is also a great place to stash things, as it’s quite difficult to get to for most humans.

    We could make data-chests containing ceramic-tile data or some computer storage with transciever, burry them in sediment or safe location, then recover or communicate to it when necessary.

    I followed developments of HavenCo when it was in its “heyday” but it is debatable whether Sealand is a true independant nation. Seasteads do have some legal advantages over something like Sealand and this is where my interests lies. I will be pursuing this avenue in the near future as I digest the wealth of material on seasteading on this site.

    Thanks for the link!
