Ocean i agree seasteading is a concept or to be more precise “an idea projected into the future”. Nobody will “build a seastead” or “kick off seasteading” seasteading will naturally evolve driven by certain dynamics from someting that is out on the ocean today already, along several devlopment axes.…[Read more]

The quest for interference freedom will ultimatly drive all activities that are not “inside the codes of applied condo resident behavior or is sleeping and watch TV with tone tuned down” to the free frontier out at sea where everything is still possible…

The question of trade and “economy to plugg in” has always been the central question of frontier development. Once american colonies where established on “trade of beaver, seaotter buffalo hide, and sugar” the economy became diversified later. Trading companies type “East India Company”, and access prviders like the “Railway Company” always played…[Read more]
Draupner a incredible high and steep wave 20m or more sets the engineering parameters for a seastead. (Would you feel safe on a flipship when this comes in ?)

The floating version of the solent forts (plate seastead, Ocean Sphere) might have transition capacity…fixed reef structues not.

ocean, no the concept does not consist in assembling trash and hold it together somehow in a floating island. This is a real building material. Concrete is a composite material consisting of cement (bonder) fiber (rebar) and fillers (aggregates). In concrete engineering you use rocks the size of plastic bottles frequently as fillers. What happens…[Read more]
You might like to investigate the projects of the Floating Neutrinos and Richi Sowa in this context. My version of floating foam pieces, plastics bottles, etc…bonded with fiberconcrete turned out to be a “solid floating island” capable to carry a light 2 story building on top…rough building cost estimate 20 USD/squarmeter real estate. We…[Read more]
Shred has a point here. For the phase we are in i would be willing to declare “Halfway to Seastead” anything that applies more or less to the following 5 points:
- It is on the water.
- You can make a living with it or on it.
- You can sleep on it and live on it at least for some time.
- It has “transition capacity” to grow into a full blown…[Read more]
Spark, to find out what is a good building process, and what a bad one, you need to do pilot projects and actually build a couple of things and then compare the project costs workhours and living space squaremeters cranked out. My first impression of your suggested process based on “polyurethan foam covered with ferrocement” is: “messy little…[Read more]

Peter, what exactly is the point of doing that – how this will lead to something that makes sense? How is your plan for transition from eating up your supply on a barge in mid ocean to “modern Venice a oceanic city that matters”.

I think the question of “what political sistem” should a seastead have is just as wrong, as the medival scolastic asking for “where is the end of the world” the world is a sphere there is no end, and seasteading is a quest for interference freedom or as Peter Thiel puts it “a way to escape politics in all its forms” it is not about “choosing a…[Read more]
Ocean i don’t see why a bubble living space is any more “choosing to live in bubble for the rest of your life” as buying an apartment is “choosing to live in a box for the rest of your life”. You are supposed to have a life outside your apartment. The grade of insulation is a choice not a obligation of the floating lifestyle. On contrary when you…[Read more]
Spark, i agree, before we enter in lengthy discussion about if we do or do not need/want a king in our castle we should probably have deep thoughts about the more basic questions. Like space the open sea is an ambient where a naked human exposed to the environment dies within minutes. So the baseline question is how do we get out a couple…[Read more]
