- Michael Hartl:
- "There will never again be a first seasteading conference. This was it - and we were there!"
- "Peter Thiel funds all the things I would if I had enough money. It takes some pressure off me!"
- Carl: "Wow, you have signs! It's a real conference!"
- On the movement getting bad PR from what some people do on the ocean: "We should tell people: Don't judge me for what someone else does just because they live in the same kind of house that I do!"
- On business ideas "We have "Sin City - drugs" and "Rehab / Detox retreat center" - we can set them up next to each other and just shuttle people back and forth."
