Call to Action: Know of a foundation that could benefit TSI? Help us reach our goal of $250k by 12/31
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. And we have now made it possible to receive the benefits of being an Argonaut for a full 10 years by pledging either $5000 over 2 years, or $10,000 all at once.
This month, April 15th marks the second anniversary of the creation of The Seasteading Institute. Over the past two years, our non-profit has grown from dreams of its founders into not just a tight-knit group internally, but a real movement with supporting donors and a dedicated membership who make their homes across the globe.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
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.
We at The Seasteading Institute would like to thank all of you for attending our second annual conference! We had a wonderful time, and know that many of you did as well. We’ve been very happy to hear how pleased you were with the event.
As many of you know, in addition to my responsibilities at TSI, I have a day job at Google. Having two jobs has been stressful, especially with the lack of alignment in having my passions one place and my time another. Therefore I have given notice at Google, and will be leaving at the end of July.
