An article about a new movement (and an institute to go with it) of seasteading, that is, homesteading the high seas as the new frontier of colonization. It would allow those who long for independence of the current governments to break free and build sea based societies of their own.

Being forward looking and ambitious I think of seasteading as no more impossible than building space stations in Earth's orbit or even colonizing Moon, Mars and beyond. Just because it hasn't successfully been done just yet doesn't mean it cannot be done, naysayers be damned.


When an author signs a publication contract, insofar as it contains strict and traditional copyright notices, he is pretty much signing his life away.
