Previous Entry Share Next Entry

This week is the last chance to RSVP for our upcoming conference and related events.

First annual conference - Friday, October 10th
Post-Conference Kayaking! ! - Saturday, October 11th
Post-Conference Dinner on Floating Island Restaurant! ! - Saturday, October 11th

According to Patri:

“…Chris Baker from Wired Magazine will be attending the conference for a story. (For a sample of Chris’ past work, see The surprising narrative richness of GTA IV).

Brian Doherty of Reason will be attending the conference, and hopefully writing a story on us also. As the author of Radicals For Capitalism and This Is Burning Man, Brian definitely has the cultural milieu for seasteading!…”

You are welcome to come to kayaking or the Forbes Island dinner whether or not you attend the conference. Also, you can RSVP now, and pay at the conference.

seasteading as off-grid living

(Link)
I've been contacted by Nick Rosen author of a book about living off-grid in England. He's starting work on a book about living off-grid in the US and will be in the states later in October. I think he'll still be in San Diego during the conference, but I know he's planning on traveling up the coast afterwards. I don't know if seasteading fits in the scope of the book, but I'll pass on info for you if you'd like. What's the best website to point him to? Should he contact you or someone else?

He might especially be interested in the book:

And Patri's paper on Dynamic Geography:

Feel free to point him to me or Patri Friedman (patri@seasteading.org).
