      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
      <http://ephemerisle.org/2010/05/memocracy-an-ephemerisle-camp-devoted-to\
      -sharing-ideas-to-change-the-world/> - a floating camp devoted to
      talks, discussions, and ideas that could change the world; and the
      SeaNote Challenge
      <http://ephemerisle.org/2010/05/eventful-intrigue-the-first-community-cr\
      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!
