For a long time now, I have dreamed about setting up an autonomous community such as a sea steading. Countless times, I debated with myself on the best way to implement the political and legal systems for the new principality. Unfortunately, in my 24 years of life, I have not become a billionaire quite yet, so I was unable to realise my dreams. You can imagine how excited I was to read a news article about the Seasteading Institute and the people behind it. It seems I am not alone with this dream, there are other like minded people out there!
Just a short intro, as I have said already, I’m a 24 year old guy from Sydney, Australia. I was originally born in Russia, and my family moved down here when I was a kid. I have a double degree (Bachelors) of Law and Commerce, and currently work as a solicitor. Personal interests include tennis, soccer, video games, cinematography and literature. I especially enjoy the fantasy genre, but I read well beyond it.
Hopefully, I can get to know a few people around here, and we can brainstorm some ideas on how we can realistically organise the societies of seasteadings and what we can do to make it all happen.
I first became interested in the idea of living on the high seas about ten years ago from one of my favorite books, The Millennial Project by Marshall Savage. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in settling unpopulated areas like the sea and outer space. Maybe it’s not the most practical book on the subject, but it has lots of good, out of the box ideas.
I was wondering about what got you interested in this in the first place. What are some of your influence on the subject?
