You got questions? We got answers.
Newcomers to the Seasteading Movement often ask at least 20 questions, and the average soundbite is 20 seconds, which may be why I was challenged to perform a PechaKucha, a hyper-fast Japanese presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each, requiring the speaker to narrate for 6:40 without controlling the slides or showing his face.
The PechaKucha audience pre-submitted 20 questions listed below.
- What’s wrong with governments?
- How does seasteading solve this problem?
- Won’t governments just form again on the ocean?
- Is seasteading realistic?
- What if I get seasick?
- What about tsunamis?
- What about hurricanes?
- What if it turns into Waterworld?
- Is seasteading safe for my grandma?
- How will seasteaders afford health care?
- How will seasteads provide water?
- Can I afford to live on a seastead?
- Can I play golf on a seastead?
- Why will floating cities be better than land cities?
- What will the laws be on seasteads?
- What about pollution?
- What about pirates?
- What about politics?
- Name me one example of a successful seastead.
- How will seasteads save the world?
I introduce the seasteading movement, explain the political philosophy, and answer all 20 questions with 20 slides featuring designs from our Floating City Architectural Design contest and 2009 Design Contest.
I hope this video helps set the stage for productive conversations.
Onward to free seas,
