i invented a system called the Bergstead. It is able to “pop the cherry” of the seasteading industry by coming to market with a $10M solution. Iam kinda stuck because i need partners to reach the next level. a couple weeks ago i locked my condo in Delaware and drove to southern California. I am looking all over for people who want to help make my design a reality. The Institute has denounced my work because it doesnt fit the mold of how they want to move forward. In my eyes it has to start with a single-family or small group size structure . thats what the Bergstead is for.

face. to the palm. yawn.June 23, 2012 at 9:42 pm #20725
jesus fuck Ellmer. if the millionaires cant afford it how the hell would everybody else? let’s at least get somebody out there already!June 22, 2012 at 1:00 pm #20723
yet a Bergstead could be completed for around $10M. just 2x the Orsos price (but with much less maintenance.June 22, 2012 at 12:58 pm #20722
could i get a “show of hands’”? which is better the Bergstead or the Orsos concept? my design does EVERYTHING the Orsos does and does it much better. the Bergstead can survive the harsh reality of life on the ocean beyond the territorial boundaries. it provides electricity, water, and hvac. the Bergstead is also MUCH more economical on maintenance because it’s made of concrete and requires a fraction of the maintenance that a steel hull requires.
why doesnt my design get any publicity?May 7, 2012 at 10:08 am #20441
yes the need is drama. we have to dramatize the seasteading movement if we want to get any attention.May 4, 2012 at 10:03 pm #20404
sportsmanship is what it all boils down to. go ahead and walk around the field tellin people how nice the weather is. yea… they still wanta rip off ur face and shove it down ur throat when the whistle blows. competition is the foundation (the hull?) of seasteading. fortunately in amerika we luvz competition.
and using a presidential example; what if prez reagan had stood in Berlin and said “Mr. President, tear down this wall!”. …ah shit he did say that. and its one of the most historic things any leader ever said in recorded history. but to the communists at the time, that kind of hate speech was not forgivable.
i hate people who are nice. i graduated college in 2006 and have sent out thousands of resumes for jobs i was qualified to do but never got a single decent one. if any person stepped up and said, “ya know Rich, ur not gonna get a job because x, y, z” i could appreciate that and learn from it. but about 5,000 pieces of shit just had to ‘be nice’. thats not leadership. its deception.
i dont think we should ‘be nice’ to social movements that undermine humanity.May 4, 2012 at 3:04 pm #20391
got a response from “Shark Tank” (TV show). Casting Director wants me to call and discuss my island invention!!May 4, 2012 at 2:59 pm #20390
A) “Kick em in the teeth” is metaphorical expression. that should go without saying. like when ur watching a football game and u want ur team to “kill” the other team.
B) I dont think the company selling seasteads will need a ‘flag of convenience’. but a good topic of research is “what is the best strategy to establish a seastead building company”. you probably want to set up your business near your best potential market. and im not sure where that is yet.May 3, 2012 at 4:00 pm #20371
nope. we have to kick em in the teeth. the seasteading movement is growing too slowly. we need more drama to get the attention of a wider audience. when people see how superior seasteading is to all other social movements they will realize how important it is to join in. but we have to pull it off the back burner and onto the front lines. annihilate the Zeitscheister movement.May 3, 2012 at 10:44 am #20365
I think the next step in the Seasteading movement is to go pick a major fight with the Zeitgeist movement, and more specifically the Venus Project. I hate those fuckers. Their ideas are so Stalinist they got no clue at all. “This is our planet and we should all learn to be happy and get along on it” …No fuck you I dont want to learn how to live better on this planet I want to live in space you pieces of shit. If we showed them why their ideas are a mindfuck we could lay claim to numerous regiments of their followers. (and lay waste to all the rest (no j/k))April 25, 2012 at 1:00 pm #20183
no, no, no, no, no…
theres no retail value for a scale bergstead. the $75K i want to raise is just to build a developmental scale version of the design. 1 unit in 1/12th scale for testing and exhibition purposes only. an actual Bergstead wwould cost at least $5 million.April 23, 2012 at 7:24 am #20162
really ticks me off when they write about alternative energy designs but they dont say a word about wattage.April 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm #20001
heres a photo of the latest Bergstead model design work. because this model will be fairly complex im working hard to make sure ever detail of every detail is thoroughly planned:April 7, 2012 at 12:42 pm #19900
Coder – plz email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. i want to send u the details of the system i designed. i think it might need an actual computer, or at least a small laptop to handle the load. but what i had in mind was to use hydro-turbines which i already built and install them under my island (1/12th scale model – 5,000lbs) to demonstrate its ability to stay under the water. in order to do that it needs to sense its own depth to know when to activate the valve (to make it dive) or the pump (to make it come up). there would be many other sensors and functions as well and i want them to upload their data to a continuous graph on a web page – thru a cell tower linkup. from the same web page you can control the submersion commands, and possibly view a video of the inside (put a lizard inside and submerge for 2 weeks). i only expect to have about 250 watts to work with.
this is a pretty complex system which i already have mapped out. im talkin complete diagram and a spreadsheet with specific model numbers quantities, prices, and links to where to buy each item. but i dont have any programming ability. just email me so i can send u a link to the diagram. hopefully we can discuss it and get to work on it.
