I think it could work.
You can also make it a competition from the construction phase : each team has, say, 1 year to devise and build its own seastead.
The structure and form does not count in itself in the competition, but it will have a major impact on the way people lifes in and on the social organisation that develops during the migration.
The TV show is good, but a dedicated blog per team (inculding small films) may also have a great potential.

- I like it. Junkyard wars is always fun. Give the teams a certain budget, certain amount of time, and a lifeboat. But would like them to all stay within a few miles of each other and if they are all different designs this might be hard. Also, we probably want some computer control that will try to keep the group together, so we probably need to provide the autopilot, thruster, and solar panel.
- Actually, even a full kit and plans would be interesting. Having people build the seastead and launch it would be challenging enough. Let them have a kit, a crane and an instruction book on how to use the crane. Vincecate 23:52, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
