I don’t think you have grasped the concept of seasteads: it’s not about planning a city-state from scratch. It is about making the growing of such cities easy and more spontaneous, which is the exact opposite of planned.June 4, 2008 at 12:49 pm #2926
I have to agree with Jesrad and want to add that your posts are less like discussion and more like you shouting random lists at us. I (and I am sure I am not the only one) find this distracting and would much rather some actual input and discussion as opposed to a freeform array of whatever word pops in your head at the time. Brainstorming is good, but is best kept to yourself to build thoughts that actually communicate with others. All in all, you’re failing the Turing Test.June 5, 2008 at 8:12 pm #3009
With both Jesrad and Ernie, I responded to one of your posts, but all of your posts are very similar. They are just random lists, that are very high on military items. You seem to want to have a war or build a huge deterrance force. I don’t think that we need that at this point. Also, I believe that the power should be created on the seastead itself, which would allow the seastead to be more mobile in case of political or enviornmental needs require it to move.
Your profile says your are prior military service, as am I, but I don’t think that is the purpose here to build out a floating armada. A jail for 100 people? LNG tanks? Wow. How many people do you expect to live on this single seastead? You do realize that most cities won’t even allow LNG takers into the harbor to to terrorist concerns.
Ernie makes a very good point. Brainstorming is for working out ideas and communicating them with others. I applaud your enthusiasm, but please work your ideas into a format that isn’t two word bulleted items over and over again.June 4, 2012 at 8:07 am #20652
why not just put this ideas in some kind of trust and then make the rest leas a boat or island or do a deal in free zone park sowmhere clsoe to the beach ? and organzie it as a memeber orgnzation ?August 12, 2012 at 11:13 pm #20923
Kinda long, but the detractors may have some things backwards. The power cables to shore are so that you can _sell_ your excess power to the landlubbers, right? And the prisoners you’re housing are overflow from the local civil authorities, not your own. The prison is an industry that pays you per inmate you take off their hands, and your facility is harder for them to escape from, especially if they have to go through decompression to leave. All the weapons and other measures, though, makes me wonder if you’ve used up a few places, and perhaps the last in a big enough way that you are trying to make yourself hard to find, or to place yourself above the law.November 6, 2012 at 9:47 am #21436

It wouldn’t exactly be cost effective but having a hand crafted forest/wildlife area would be very cool.
