Seasteading supports the creation of floating city-states where people can experiment with self-governance and escape the rules and conventions of dry land. <strong>Atossa Abrahamian is </strong>a Brooklyn-based journalist and editor of “The New Inquiry.” She wrote about <a href="http://nplusonemag.com/seasteading">her visit to Ephemerisle </a>for N+1 magazine.</p><p> Mon, 22 Jul 2013 13:52:53 +0000 Virginia Prescott 31740 at http://nhpr.org Burning Man Of The Ocean: Seasteading's Ephemerisle Explored A Summer Arts Round-Up http://nhpr.org/post/summer-arts-round <p>There’s plenty to do this summer weekend in New England, including a few Word of Mouth favorites and others yet to be discovered.
