About the name
The Seasteading Institute (http://seasteading.org/) threw a floating festival called Ephemerisle in 2009. They had to back out of the event the following year due to insurance problems. However, the attendees of the event just showed up anyways, and it became an independent event with no central organization. This year, it's independent from the beginning.
