Several TSI members plan to attend the Singularity Summit this year in 2010. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, maybe you’ll be interested in meeting up with us there!
The use of flotels during the 2010 FIFA World Cup recently won by Spain is an example of the possibilities and variety of uses of flotels, but we will see here another two recent examples; we dedicate special efforts to study the technology and uses of flotels, as this is the state of the art of maritime technology for offering accommodation to people at sea:&nb
Would love help coming up with media contacts for the upcoming seasteading book – people who could review it & get the word out especially. Ideally we can find a wide variety of people in a variety of forums, each of whom has written something that indicates they are philosophically aligned with seasteading. Would be awesome if those of y’all who read a lot of blogs/press or network a lot with media types would bookmark this page and make use of it over the coming months :). This is an experiment in crowdsourcing more of our research – we’ll see how it goes!

The Mises Institute Brazil has posted the video of my talk at the first Mises Brazil conference earlier this year, to 200+ people. They gave me a long time slot, so rather than the short introductory talk I give to audiences like TEDx, I got to include a bunch of structural activism discussion as well as just seasteading. This is the longest and most-recent talk video available for seasteading, so…enjoy!

Wind, waves and current forces should be analyzed together with the propulsion configuration of the vessel. But some rough estimation could be done easily with the HSSC number as explained here below.
