MI&T has been burning the midnight oil to get [this engineering report](/files/MIandT040_08_R1_Seastead_Exec_Sum.pdf) out.
Hey everyone. We’ve got several new features launching this week, just in time for the traffic from the Wired Magazine article – [Live Free or Drown: Floating Utopias on the Cheap](http://www.wired.com/techbiz/startups/magazine/17-02/mf_seasteading?currentPage=all).

As the project has been getting more active lately, Wayne & I are going to start meeting more on Wednesday’s. We had an interesting design discussion about some of his thoughts on spar construction, Personal Seasteads, and detachable spars. Highlights:
