Thinking outside the box: January meetup with with Talk on Society 2.0 framework

Join us for an evening of exciting talks, brainstorming and socializing with some of the most interesting people in the Seasteading movement.

This time we'd like to discuss a quite different and yet as important topic for future seasteading communities - new ways to organize and run independent societies in a just, transparent and efficient fashion.

Mike Parziale will present the "Elastic Republic" concept - an attempt to create new self-managed frameworks to run a society, including all the necessary systems/services (legislative, judicial, executive, financial, political, etc). It is a fresh, innovative and somewhat controversial concept that utilizes the modern Internet technologies, social networks, reputation web and other tools to help any society self-organize, evolve and manage itself in a simple, transparent and fair way.

Mike has a wide range of experience and interests in politics, economics and monetary systems. He has been working on the "Elastic Republic" idea for quite some time and getting ready to launch the first web application with his team at Walking Innovators meetup. Please join his team to learn more about the project (

We'll have the Q/A session right after the presentation and we look forward to your ideas/suggestions/criticism.
