Hello, I wanted to introduce myself as I’m hoping to become a little more active in the seasteading community.
I first heard of the idea of seasteading when I stumbled upon Patri Friedman’s blog in 2004 while I was in college. I had just read David Friedman’s The Machinery of Freedom and was very into anarcho-capitalism at the time (hence the name). I had no idea there were any real active efforts around seasteading until much to my amazement I found the TSI website in 2010 and realized Patri had actually made this thing happen.
At the time I was working as an intelligence analyst in the US army, but I’ve since spent the last 6 years in the renewable energy industry working mainly in utility scale solar development. I am currently more focused on energy market analytics. I am also skilled in financial modeling and do a quite a bit of python coding for my job.
I recently bought a waterfront property with about 150 ft of beach and a mooring buoy in the San Juan Islands. I use it as a vacation rental, but I’m hoping to maybe do some experiments there in the not too distant future.
I am very excited about exploring business models that function on the open ocean – and am particularly interested in the energy aspect. Of late I have been completely fascinated reading all the tire ring weaving posts and am wondering about ways that could potentially be scaled up. I can think of some very interesting potential use cases if we can get the cost down.
