This is a wiki page for [http://seasteading.org/ The Seasteading Institute].  It is meant to collect and organize community-generated information.  Ideas about how to use it:
* Collecting data on availability and pricing of things like generators, scrap, etc.
* Gathering [[Proposals]]
* Gathering information
Some things that don't belong here:
* Discussion (use [http://seasteading.org/forum the forums] instead)
* Duplicated information in the seasteading book.  Please link to it instead.  The current version is [http://seasteading.org/seastead.org/book_alpha/ book alpha], but we use the [http://seasteading.org/seastead.org/book_beta/faq.html FAQ from the book beta].
Wikis tend to get disorganized, so please feel free to re-organize and re-arrange when needed - organizing information can be just as useful as adding it!
Please use [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Category Categories] whenever possible!  Categories allow for auto-generated indexes of pages on a specific topic, like designs which use spars: [[:Category:Spar]].

This wiki is our first experiment with using a "standard" technology (MediaWiki) rather than doing everything within Drupal, which powers seasteading.org. Feel free to comment on this choice here.


  • Quick & easy (thanks Joep!)
  • Separate servers means less DB load, less security issues
  • Clear separation between published and community content


  • Accounts are not unified (although this may be fixable)
  • The theme/look is different
  • There is debate over whether Drupal w/ a WYSIWYG editor makes a better wiki than MediaWiki.
