Author Joe Quirk, a “seavangelist” for The Seasteading Institute presents a brief but thought provoking case for the development of independent sea faring habitats. From the description:
Joe Quirk of the Seasteading Institute thinks floating cities will allow micro nations to compete for people — providing better life options and innovations. “Aquapreneurs,” says Quirk, can save humanity from disease, environmental harm and maybe even war.
I’ve always been drawn to artificial habitats, be they subterranean, extraterrestrial, or maritime. I hope to live long enough to see a space colony, but cities of the sea are probably going to happen first.
