Some holiday weekend humor:
[Our more analytical explanation of why we aren’t recycling the gyre](http://www.seasteading.org/blogs/main/2009/11/03/why-we-arent-going-recycle-north-pacific-garbage-patch).
Apparently the webcomic above will be making fun of us next week – I hope they do a good job!
> Spoiler Alert: on Monday, I will also be talking about Seasteading, but I will be uninhibitedly making fun of some of the players on the scene.
Jim Von Ehr donates $100,000 to The Seasteading Institute
Not all nanotechnology entrepreneurs think small. Jim Von Ehr, founder and CEO of Zyvex Labs–a leading nanotech company–recently gave $100,000 to The Seasteading Institute (TSI) toward the goal of creating independent communities on the open ocean.
This year’s event promises to be amazing, for all of the reasons Patri talked about in his recent blog post, How Ephemerisle 2010 will bring us closer to seasteading.
There are a limited number of tickets available, so get yours before they run out!
See you on the water…

Peter Thiel, president of Clarium, technology investor, and libertarian philanthropist, has renewed his financial support of The Seasteading Institute (TSI) for 2010. He has pledged to match every donation to TSI made before July 24th, 2010, dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000. In addition, he is giving TSI a $250,000 grant.
