GOOD NEWS

Boat is ours, for $6,000 for the boat and $6,000 for the mooring - so only a little bit higher

Am aboard now trying to figure out what's working and what is not working. No longer sinking, and some solar is encouraging electrons into some batteries we found at the skip, slowly coming alive as we fix more and more

Scuttlebutt has bought it's first ship

After finding the boat abandoned, discovering who it belonged to and raising the funds on SSB we have now secured the boat for it's solarpunk future as a support vessel for anyone working to make the world better.

The last week looked a lot like we were going to be outbid, or maybe he wasn't going to sell it anymore.
The owner turned the sail into a strange text message based auction, with the highest offer by 6pm on Friday being the winner. After a bit of game theory analasys I decided to text him an offer ever so slightly higher at 5:59, which worked!

We're now sorting the paperwork, figuring out whats even aboard and picking up all the random other parts of boats which are all over Auckland and Northland

This story is going to unfold on scuttlebutt first, legacy web second, so stay tuned. And thanks everyone for the help making this a thing!

next things

I think the next most important thing is something to encourage people to run a local ssb-server (with the plugins etc) - maybe something at the top which says 'hey you're connected to ssb.guild.land but you should run your own thing for offline stuff'

I'm gunna move the d3 map to work with zooming behaviour which hopefully fixes the mobile-dragging not working that great.

Then I'm gunna add a new dimension, so instead of just x/y it'll be 1554102582670/x/y where the number is the seed for generating this map tile - that way the universe can expand

Thennn maybe experiment with setting up a 'guild' which is like building a village. Villages can have people who've joined, maybe shared funds to build something and maybe some kind of todo list. Plan is for this part to be a x/y addressed thing on a dApp - so this starts to walk a strange line between decentralised and centralised
