We'd like to remind everyone of our upcoming Second Annual Conference and First-Ever Ephemerisle Festival, where the far-flung seasteading community will gather in person to explore the theory and practice of seasteading.

Second Annual Seasteading Conference

September 28th - 30th, San Francisco, CA

People from from across the globe have registered to see esteemed speakers like TSI Funder and PayPal founder Peter Thiel, Stanford University's Paul Romer, HavenCo founder Sean Hastings, anarchist economist David Friedman, How To Start Your Own Country author Erwin Strauss, controversial political blogger Mencius Moldbug, and many more. Featuring the unveiling of our strategy for the next 5 years, a unique seasteading simulation, Annual Open Board Meeting, and our Annual Member's Dinner, you don't want to miss this gathering of luminaries, entrepreneurs, and pioneers - so register today!

For more information, check out the conference webpage.

World's Only First-Ever Ephemerisle Festival

October 2nd-4th, Sacramento Delta, CA

To make seasteading happen, we need practice as well as theory, which is why this year our conference is accompanied by the first ever Ephemerisle festival of politics, community, and art. Out on the water we'll work, play, talk, and immerse ourselves in a deep but temporary world of possibility. We're constructing 3 main platforms (a prototype is pictured above, holding a coffeeshop-in-a-trailer), to which numerous houseboats, ships, and homebuilt platforms will dock - each with their own set of laws. And we've awarded 7 grants so far to art projects such as those pictured below:


The attendees of this year's Ephemerisle will be able to say, for the rest of their lives: "I was there when it all started." Don't miss your chance to begin at the beginning and contribute to the future of an event that will change the world - register today! For more information, check out the Ephemerisle webpage, as well as Patri's discussion of how Ephemerisle advances seasteading

This was a special mid-month announcement, as our September Newsletter will likely be delayed while we produce, participate in, and recover from these events. To help tide you over, check out our conference & ephemerisle newsletters:
