If your passion for making seasteading happen goes well above and beyond the call of duty, then consider joining the ranks of the Argonauts. Argonauts demonstrate their commitment to the seasteading dream by pledging $1000 a year for ten years.

Those who follow Patri’s blog may have noted mention of some new help at The Seasteading Institute. Indeed, in November, TSI succeeded in filling four open roles to further the seasteading mission, revolving around business development, donor and fundraising efforts, and community development. As a new face here, I (Naomi) would like to humbly introduce myself and the three others who now join us.
