Re: [luf-team] Atoll numbers (thinking aloud)
I keep thinking that all of the these visions rely on a HUGE amount of technology to come to realization. I try to roll my mind forward as I think of these visions, knowing that they rely on a huge amount of technology and these technologies require time and energy to perfect. Do w have the time before the energy is so scarce that we can't build the visions we have? Can we focus on perfecting technologies that can produce huge amounts of power from the sun so that we have not need to fossil fuels to power the industries that we would need to create OTEC plants and PSPs? Can we focus on motivating industrial forces to take on the task of using our now dwindling fossil fuels to build the solar power systems like the curved array in Adulusia, Spain. Can we stop the political hacks in DC from throwing good money after bad to shore up the falter oil industry so that money can be channel to renewables - May these should be our near term goals so that we can realize our visions?

So the question is, how to make it happen?
I'll suggest an investment with tranches is one alternative.
I am going to run through the math (in detail) for kicks. but for example
it might look like:
Tranche 1 - OWNER (200) - $100
Tranche 2 - OWNER - $1000
the plan. equity in intellectual property, corporate structures,
relationships and agreements.
Tranche 3 - OWNER - $1000
Tranche 4 - OWNER - $10,000
Atoll - now we have physical real estate.
$2 million investment
Tranche 5 - OWNER - $50,000
Containers - in place.
$10 million investment
Tranche F - Owner - $50k to $300k
for a 1600 sqr ft condo in an ocean city community.
with an ownership and financial interest in the community.
I think the trick is to make sure you create enough value in each
investment tranche to hold and justify the investment.
ie Intellectual Property is an asset.
if a person wants to sell - you hope the value of their share is increasing
as you do the work. so there is no risk to the investors. (and note: this
is an investment subscription, intending to fund successive steps with
owners contributing additional capital as milestones are achieved.
