Meet other people interested in seasteading (homesteading the high seas) to talk, network, and brainstorm. Seasteaders believe that it's time to stop arguing about political systems and start trying them out on a small scale, most likely on floating platforms in international waters.

Grant Romundt, CEO of Ocean Builders, will reveal the new Wiki and project management system for collaborating on projects for seasteads.
Once a month, we will host an online discussion on a topic related to seasteading.
Seasteading is living on environmentally restorative floating islands with some degree of political autonomy.
The term comes from homesteading, which means making a home for oneself in new, uninhabited places. It generally has associations with self-sufficiency and a frontier lifestyle. Seasteading is reminiscent of that idea, but at sea.
The topic for our June meeting is: Ocean Builders Project Development with Grant Romundt.
**Please plan to log in to the Zoom meeting 30 minutes before the event starts! Your RSVP does not guarantee a spot for you.**
Grant has a talent for spotting innovative technology and figuring out ways to use it to make life better. He has been an early adopter across many fields. He was the first and youngest to write a software program in Canada and compete in a science fair in 1980 at the age of 8, he had the most advanced mobile paperless office in Canada in 1995 including being the first to use VoIP technology in Canada, and he lived in a tech “frat-house” in San Francisco with one of the 6 co-founders of PayPal.
Today he owns several businesses specializing in software development, video production, education, sales, and training. His customers include billion-dollar multinational companies like Wella Professionals, OPI, Clairol, Nioxin, Sebastian, L’Oreal Professional, and many others.
For the past four years, he has been living in a floating home and he is bringing his years of experience in innovation, business leadership, and design, to Ocean Builders to develop the technology & systems needed to build open-source eco-restorative futuristic floating homes on the blue frontier.
For our June meeting, Grant will show us how to use the new Ocean Builders project management site for people around the world to collaborate on developing technology for building seasteads.
Joe Quirk, President and Seavangelist of The Seasteading Institute, will join us to talk about our new Incubator Scholarship to support the growth of the seasteading community.
