in the context of “future of marine business” do me a favor and split this topic in a “dedicated thread”
Wow you really are a forum fascist, aren’t you?
I don’t see how my post in any way derails this thread. First, I called you an idiot for condescendingly dismissing the idea that growing cannabis is a viable…[Read more]
Any food including a T-bone steak can be grown with cell culture in a glass box skipping the (today obsolete) way over a living cow.
Wow. We are a looooong way from growing a steak via cell culture…let alone something like a T-bone. What would you use for the bone?!!
I will agree 100% that the future of meat production is cell culture. …[Read more]
How much land does it takes to be self reliant?
Traditional land-based agriculture will never work in a seastead…land is too expensive, as you state. A seastead will have to embrace new agricultural technologies such as aeroponics.
1) Grow cycles are more than 1/3 shorter than conventional farming…you get a LOT more produce per year
2) It…[Read more]
Sovereignty of the island is disputed; both Canada and the United States claim sovereignty.
So obviously this would not be a free governing colony in that area. That is why I brought up “Gray Areas”
Exactly. “Disputed” doesn’t mean “unclaimed”. Somebody owns those areas, it just hasn’t been settled as to whom that is. And your choices are…[Read more]
Looks like building up from the seafloor is a better way to…[Read more]
er,smith, how necessary is it to disscuss lengthy and forum cluttering about the OBVIOUS ?
Hello, Kettle? This is the Pot. You’re black.
in the USA there is little that is sacrosanct (or pretty)
Er, you need to be careful in throwing out statements like that:
It would be interesting to see if those that chose to experiment
That is the key here, isn’t it. You have to design a system that would allow inhabitants like Ken and I to stay in a place we have designed and…[Read more]
all the house are the same.
That’s the beauty of the 3D printing idea…every house can be custom-created for the individual user. The reason all the houses in your example are the same is because a single construction company used the same forms over-and-over to build each house. With 3D printing the customer can sit down and create their own…[Read more]
how do i attach them to a structure in a way they don’t shatter?
You don’t attach the mooring system at all. If you’re talking about using a sphere like ellmer then I would use some kind of netting, like this:
Then you simply attach the looped part to a mooring line (or lines, preferably) and you’re set. There is no single attachment point…[Read more]
The problem is that while this design might work in protected waters, and is based off existing floating architecture, it doesn’t scale AT ALL to ocean-based seasteading. All this design proves is that you can […]
I didn’t say the billionaire would build the seastead. Do you even read? The billionaire would form a sovereign nation that would act as a ship registry to supply seasteads with a flag of convenience. People are on their own building their own seasteads based on whatever they like.
And you’ll need a billionaire to build the seastead as well. …[Read more]
but we didn’t even touch the subject of owning territorial waters and an EEZ
Once you have an ocean-facing sovereign piece of land, you automatically have territorial waters and an EEZ. You have to enter into negotiations with neighboring nations to work out the borders, etc. But those are rights granted to sovereign nations in UNCLOS, not…[Read more]
Still no information on how one of the inner platforms would be able to move away if the people on that platform want to “vote with their feet”. The entire idea of “dynamic geography” needs to be dropped, it […]
>There’s other reasons for a balloon to fall down,
>But if the wind stops, i hope the generator up there doesn’t land in the ocean!
>It would have to be reeled in if the winds die down
I was responding to both […]
There are plenty of groups experimenting with large-scale concrete 3D printing, for applications in the housing industry. This is both high-throughput printing of modules and components that are assembled […]
First of all, the point of using an airborne wind turbine is that the turbine is at a height where the wind never dies down. You raise the turbine up into the high wind streams that are constantly circulating the […]
i_is_j_smith replied to the topic The Floating City Seasteading project happening right now.. in the forum Active Seasteading Projects 1 year, 4 months ago
Well they made $345 just for shooting a video with their iphone and editing it with MSPaint so it wasn’t a total bust. “A sucker born every minute” is underestimating the number of suckers and the rate at which […]
1) Build where there aren’t any of those things
2) Utilize breakwater structures to protect the main seastead
3) Build big, so there is less impact on the structure
