I purely HATE videos (can't hear) but I'll watch this one cause of the subject matter. Perhaps if i turn the speakers up REALLLY loud? (it's daytime...no one is asleep nearby...not the normal occurrence since I'm a night owl)

I'm sorry for not speaking too clear (and maybe too fast). I said "Seastead". With Daoism, I meant that Chinese philosophy founded by Laozi and most famous for its Yin and Yang symbol. ;)

In case you would like to know more about Seasteading, you can find my previous post about it here https://steemit.com/philosophy/@chhaylin/the-value-of-creating-micro-nations-on-the-oceans-a-simple-philosophical-case-for-seasteading

I also wrote a piece about Daoism and its association with Libertarianism here https://steemit.com/philosophy/@chhaylin/laozi-the-first-libertarian

Good interview!
I enjoyed @Chhaylin talk at SteemFest on seasteading. It was one of those talks where I continued to think about the concepts discussed days later.

That's very kind of you @opheliafu! We haven't talked to each other at SteemFest, but I would like to let you know that I and my brother (@chhayll) admire your artistic skills. I also remember at Xeroc's talk on blockchain that we were sitting next to you, and we thought that your notes taking technique was extremely cool.

Yeah, I'm always interested in discussing ideas! Hope we can meet each other then @ekitcho. There have been so many people at SteemFest with so many great ideas I haven't talked to.

Hi @Chhaylin - you seem like my type of person. I have an interest in Seasteading. Are you able to share a link to your Steemfest talk?

You can view my SteemFest talk here. I edited it - cut out some "ahhs" and "uhms" so it becomes easier to follow. I've also added subtitles. ;)

Be sure to start at 3h 14m 50seconds.

You're right @chhaylin, the much better solution is to write / design / show the tech that will enable a different (or better) kind of lifestyle :)
