Come to Ephemerisle This Year With Us?
- Tickets <http://ephemerisle.org/the-event/tickets/> are now available
for The Seasteading Institute's second annual floating festival of
freedom, Ephemerisle <http://ephemerisle.org/> . Join visionaries such
as futurist philanthropist Peter Thiel
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Thiel> , Michael Vassar, Executive
Director of the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence
<http://singinst.org/> ; John Smart, President of the Acceleration
Studies Foundation <http://www.accelerating.org/> ; Christine Peterson,
President of the Foresight Institute <http://www.foresight.org/> , and
hundreds of other futurists, iconoclasts, artists, and do-ers for a
celebration of creative expression and utopian experimentation. Expect
music and dance; discussion and debate; cooperation and creation, all
happening July 22-25 on the Sacramento River Delta.
Ephemerisle is the initial step in a grand experiment: the first
practical foray into colonizing the oceans.
The Seasteading Institute knows that big visions are best achieved
through action, not words, and it is in that spirit that Ephemerisle was
created -- an embryonic seasteading city, existing in physical reality,
today. Ephemerisle will evolve incrementally
<http://ephemerisle.org/the-event/whats-new-for-ei-2010/> each year
until it has the technology and population to be a full-fledged
independent city on the ocean, generating awareness, community, and
invaluable experience for the seasteading movement along the way.
And what an experience it is! Ephemerisle is a unique opportunity to
connect with other like-minded individuals at a participant-driven event
where the community creates amazing things. Last year's Ephemerisle
<http://ephemerisle.org/vision/ephemerisle-history/> featured a
post-apocalyptic lounge boat, a solar powered trimaran, and other
heretofore unseen feats of DIY nautical engineering and artistic
endeavor. This year's event is even better: Participant projects include
The Relentless <http://artstead.tumblr.com/> - a salvaged antique house
boat turned floating experimental art venue; Memocracy
-sharing-ideas-to-change-the-world/> - a floating camp devoted to
talks, discussions, and ideas that could change the world; and the
eations-for-2010/> - an alternative currency experiment designed to
ignite the imaginations of artists and entrepreneurs alike. Many, many
more are in the works.
If you want to help create the cradle of civilization for mankind's next
frontier, get your ticket <http://ephemerisle.org/the-event/tickets/>
now. Don't just wait to read about it -- be a part of it!
