Video: Prototyping the City of the Future

(joequirk) #1

It’s good to know you can rely on your colleague. While I was headed to Moscow to introduce business leaders to the Floating Island Project (video forthcoming), our friend and partner Greg Delaune, who accompanied us at his own expense to Tahiti to help us present to President Fritch, offered Randy the keynote spot at the UIX Global Urban Innovation Exchange.

Randy didn’t disappoint. We wanted to give our supporters the first sneak-preview of what we hope to accomplish for seasteading in 2017.

As we approach the end of the year, I hope you’ll support our next important steps to the seas. Please donate whatever you are comfortable giving, whether it’s $25, $100, $1000, or $10,000 – whether it’s a one-time donation or if you sign up as a monthly supporter – your contribution will be valuable to us as we prepare to launch the first seastead.

For Seasteading,

Joe Quirk, Seavangelist and Author
