A group of people in Silicon Valley are very serious about creating a new floating frontier outside of government jurisdiction. With seed money from Peter Thiel, The Seasteading Institute founders Wayne Gramlich and Patri Friedman (Milton Friedman's grandson) have been hard at work to realize their dream for the past ten years. This workshop will introduce the concept, culture, and history of the contemporary seasteading movement. The workshop will be co-taught by two siblings: an artist currently producing a series of paintings and prints about Seasteading and Ephemerisle, and her real estate developer brother who has served as an advisor for The Seasteading Institute and attended Ephemerisle in 2014.
