Ambassadors / United States / Washington, D.C.

Dannie Bolden

Dannie Bolden is a Sophomore at Howard University in Washington D.C., where he is currently majoring in Political Science. Dannie Bolden was born in Anchorage, Alaska where his early years consisted of learning and interacting with his grade school peers and instructors. During this time he developed Philanthropia, which is a love of humanity and the world. Having lived in many different parts of the country, Dannie has had the privilege of meeting many great and influential people. These people, along with his Philanthropia, have driven him to work hard towards ensuring a better future for the world. Some of these people, including fellow students at Howard University, have stated that the future of America holds limited opportunities for them. Dannie hopes to counter this notion by presenting the message of seasteading to his community. Dannie hopes to inspire everyone to meet their full potential, and to pursue the great treasures that lie ahead for humanity.

“At this point in history, it is the most opportune time for any person seeking to tap into the next undiscovered job sector to analyze Seasteading. Seasteading, in my opinion, is one of the next revolutionary advancements to be unleashed in this new era of humanity. It is important to hop on board now, and to not get left behind. As an Ambassador I will ensure that no one will get left behind.”

Jules Wellinghoff

Jules Wellinghoff is an undergraduate student at Oberlin College majoring in Biology. His main areas of interest are human health, infectious diseases, and biologically-based technologies. He is excited about seasteading from an interest in intentional communities, the positive effects it could have on established governments, and its potential role in medical innovation by providing the opportunity to avoid burdensome regulations.

“My reasons for supporting seasteading are its potential to allow for new types and scopes of intentional communities, its ability to enable innovations in medicine and increased patient choice, and its likely role in improving governments of established countries… I am very much in agreement with The Seasteading Institute’s stated belief that seasteading will improve established governments. Seasteading will allow for experimentation and competition in government structure which everyone, seasteaders and citizens of established countries alike, stand to benefit from. Further, I have witnessed how massive groups often result in inefficiency and lack of creativity in projects compared to small, tightly-knit groups. I believe that seasteading will allow for increased advances of all varieties by allowing people with shared motivations to more easily form communities united around common objectives.”

Tony Smith

Anthony Smith is an undergraduate studying International Studies at American University in Washington, DC. He has a passion for international relations, particularly US relations with the developing world, and is an experienced and passionate orator who enjoys leading and taking risks. Anthony sees a desperate need for greater experimentation in government because of the continuing trend of globalization and decline in political innovation. He believes our current governmental systems and political ideologies are based upon 20th century concepts that do not account for revolutionary new technologies such as the internet and global telecommunications.

“Seasteading will be an important part of the future geopolitical landscape, and I want to be at the forefront of that development.”
