Ideas for 2012
Our first pre-event meeting had a focus on event feedback. There should be a following meeting with the specific focus on what we want to see next year. See the page here as a starting point.
There is an orientation meeting (primarily aimed at first-timers) scheduled for February 12th, 2012. The event will be from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM at 636 Santa Ray Ave., Oakland, CA. The event is a pot luck. Bring your Ephemerisle ideas and your interesting friends (and vice versa).
Design discussion w/ George Petrie
The Seasteading Institute's Director of Engineering George Petrie has offered to consult on a project for next year if there is a team interested in designing/building a small model of future seastead. For example, he could coach the building of a small semi-submersible platform such as those showcased on our website, which could be used a community space for future Ephemerisles.
A class to expand and distribute knowledge about first aid and boating safety through more of the community.
A class to expand and distribute knowledge about boating, particularly knot tying and anchoring, through more of the community.
