In the second year, Ephemerisle took place during July 23-25, 2010, in the Mandeville Tip County Park on the Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta ([http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=207854270338809155245.0004864803082020221ed&ll=38.058837,-121.539345&spn=0.047915,0.098791&z=11 map]).
This year, The Seasteading Institute officially abandoned the event about a month before it was to begin because the insurance costs turned out to be around $300/person. As a community, we decided to show up anyway and create an unofficial self-organized event, branded “NotEphemerisle”. Despite the lack of central organization, it still worked quite well, and around 120 people showed up and had a great time.
Besides recreational activities, the event also hosted 12 “Memocracy” talks.1
