Or maybe start smaller - you have a back yard. Can I set up a tent and we can practice cohabitating. I am gonna need to take a poop somewhere, but I am keen to help set up solar panels.
coordinating 2000 people is too hard.
I reckon find someone who is rich enough and interested in supporting the prototyping of the future we want to live in.
My experience is the cryptocurrency bubble has enabled a lot of new people and given them money they didn't really work for, and they're interested in positive futures. How about a few bitcoin millionaires. I guess I'm saying better to spend you $20K launching the possibility, eploring the idea, and building relationship with people who might like to casually fund it.
@Nate are you in NZ yet? We're organising another float up for feb
@Nate I keep wondering about not buying the island at all but instead arranging some kind of island borrowing agreement
If I had an island but not really time to do stuff with it, I wouldn't want to sell it to randoms because it'd be upsetting to see it go all weird - I'd want to keep agency.
If some group of vegabonds rocked up and said they'd be up for doing things on the island, this sounds more interesting (I still get to keep the island) but I'd worry about liability or loosing control. What if they make mess and die on the island, that'd suck.
SO: What if we suggest something along the lines of borrowing part of the island, under the terms of
- leave no trace unless agreed
- no right to stay on the island or own it
- major changes to the island must be agreed on in advance
@neftaly yeah that's a pretty good comparison
Sailed out to Pakatoa to check out the island
We met the guy who helps keep things running and had a good look round.
Got some gel batteries he'd recycled from the telecom people
We BBQed on the beach together on an open fire then saw the most vivid bioluminescent stuff all along the gently lapping waves. Networks of it lit up on the drying sand as you walked over it like scifi stuff
