	Ditto. I've seen the little writeup in "Last Frontiers" and was
also intrigued by the design. I've considered doing a 3D computer model of
it for people to be able to view and/or maybe VRML so they can
manipulate/explore it interactively. 

	I think I may have posted this before, and it's not big enough to
live in for a long time, but the Aquatic Pod Suite seems like a good first
crack at this seasteading concept:

	And the autonomous house I've been working on for years is like a
4000-5000 sq. foot version of that 150 sq. foot Pod Suite. I was planning
to make it a land-based house for the 1.0 run, but for 2.0, I figured it
should float on the oceans, and at 3.0, should be able to function as a
gondola on a balloon/airship. so you can take to the skies. You can find
all the details (if you haven't seen 'em already) at
