At the 2009 Seasteading Conference, many of you expressed interest in joining us aboard a cruise ship for our next gathering.
Thus we are pleased to announce that Reason Magazine and The Seasteading Institute are teaming up to bring you a seven-day Caribbean Cruise featuring thought-provoking speakers, influential journalists, and an all-star cast of thinkers and freedom fighters from around the world.
As a guest on the Solstice, Celebrity Cruises' beautiful luxury liner, you'll be able to take part in special seasteading events geared towards exploring the concepts of seasteading, hosted by TSI staff:The Case for Seasteading - Could seasteading revolutionize government as we know it? We make the case that seasteading is necessary in order to spur innovation in government. TSI Status Update – We bring you up to date with the latest news from TSI. Commercial Seasteading - Is seasteading economically viable? Commercial seasteading could pave the way for doing business on the high seas. Ephemerisle – We discuss our plans to evolve an embryonic seasteading city from a small floating festival on the Sacramento River Delta to a permanent city in international waters.
In addition, we'll be encouraging all cruise participants to contribute to the discussion of seasteading, and inviting YOU to present your ideas to a forum of open-minded, reason-oriented fellow attendees. TSI welcomes you to take part in the following social events:The Seasteading Simulation – Put your seafaring business skills to the test in a simulation where you play a character trying to design, fund, and operate a seastead! Unconference Talks – Other seasteaders discuss their plans and ambitions in this “un-“conference. Seasteading Mixer – Socialize over drinks and lunch with other seasteaders.
Be sure to mention The Seasteading Institute on your registration form under the question, "How did you hear about the Reason Cruise?"
The latest engineering research suggests that converting cruise ships may be best option for establishing near-term, ocean-stable settlements. What better way to dive into the mental landscape of seasteading than to experience life first-hand aboard a genuine city-at-sea, as you take in the gorgeous physical landscapes of four seaside ports of call.
This cruise aboard The Solstice will take you from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to three beautiful Caribbean islands: San Juan (Puerto Rico), St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands) and St. Maarten (Netherland Antilles), at a time of year celebrated for warm, calm, and balmy weather. The full itinerary can be found on this page.
