What the heck is seasteading?!

 

This is the third time in about a week that I’ve come across an article that touches on seasteading (see The New Yorker,  The Atlantic and The Economist).  We already have giant ships that travel the oceans, so technically we already have mini ocean cities.  The difference with these seasteading dreamers, however, is that they want to be self-governing islands unattached to any country (and it’s laws!).  This is kind of freaky, right?  The dystopia in the movie The Beach just popped into my head.
