During a presidential election year in the United States and amid a troubling global economic situation, escape is probably in the back of many peoples’ minds.  Why not escape then to the sea, where your home might one day be mobile enough to set sail for a makeshift water nation tailored to your own beliefs?

Seasteading – creating “permanent dwellings on the ocean” – is an idea that has found recent financial backing and media attention.  Those interested in seasteading hope it will take off in the same way that the private space industry has taken off in recent years.

The Seasteading ’08 Conference will be held on October 10, 2008 in Burlingame, CA, USA.  The day of workshops will focus on the first steps required to reside on the ocean, including business plans, governance issues, and designs.
