I’ve been reading about the Seastading project while reading online newspaper ( http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/technik/schwimmende-staedte-zuhause-auf-dem-ozean-a-1130964.html )
I thought about it a little when I came across the information that the pan in the end stadium is to build complete offshore cities, how the IT-infrastructure should bei connected to the rest of the world. The most relieable and fastest method of connection is the mono mode glasfiber cable, satelite uplinks are at some point unrelieable (when you watch tv during really bad weather or a strong snow fall then the satelite array could show some kind of interruption).
Reading further the article it came clear to me, that the idea is after all moving offshore cities, which rules glasfiber cable out.
Anyone with an idea how to get around this problem, for a functional IT-infrastructure which is inevitable in modern world.
