Review by Olga Panades Massanet.
Open_Sailing is a floating architecture evolving like a living organism,
a laboratory for techno-social experiments - developing and testing
numerous novel technologies, such as "Instinctive_Architecture",
"Energy_Animal", and "Life_Cable" within an innovative nomadic
ecosystem. The "Swarm_Search_Engine" is a distributed operating system
that suggests a general safest location and a form for the overall
structure that constantly reconfigures itself in order to provide
intelligent distribution of supplies, energy and information.
"Led by a group of enthusiasts, gathered around the idea of "we don't
know what will happen, but together we can invent our future and cope",
the project puts forward a very ambitious, action-driven,
experiment-led, way of thinking forward. After meeting with the founder
of the project, Cesar Harada, Open_Sailing proved to be a much more
complex enterprise than I originally thought."
A living, breathing, thriving networked neighbourhood...
