Help Us Plan Our Strategy!

Here at TSI, we’ve been thinking a lot about how to improve our strategy. We recently published a [strategy document](http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dck5q6sr_12cqrdxrf2) and a [vision timeline](http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dck5q6sr_11fcftn966), but these are only the beginning, covering things at a very high level.

We also want results sooner. Our current timeline & strategy describe modest achievements — a prototype seastead built, a successful ocean-based business operating — by the end of 2010. We’ve been thinking in recent weeks that we can, and want to, do better.

Engineering Q&A Text online

Alexia sent us a text document with answers to all 19 of the questions from the February YayBoo list. I have added it to the [ClubStead engineering hub](http://seasteading.org/strategic-areas/engineering/clubstead#QnA), to which I also added a table of contents, as it is getting quite long.

As a reminder, we also posted [the webcast video](http://www.justin.tv/seasteading/all). It is quite boring and the sound is not good, so I really can’t recommend trying to watch it.

Engineering Q&A Webcast

With the release of all the engineering documents on our [ClubStead page](http://seasteading.org/strategic-areas/engineering/clubstead), lots of questions have come up. For example, some people have pointed out that the topside weight and platform load are incompatible, and that there are negative airgaps in some of the big wave scenarios.

We believe strongly in the virtues of transparency, which is why we released the engineering information as soon as we could – right after the patent was filed – even though it isn’t complete.

I’ve created [a hub for information about our ClubStead hotel/resort design](http://seasteading.org/strategic-areas/engineering/clubstead). It contains all the info posted so far, plus a SketchUp model for you to play with.
