update to Stage 3: Ocean Surface

Edit isn't working, I'm posting additional information since the web client for LJ is just horrible.

Edit: I suppose I should mention why I didn't embrace this group more. In February they had a discussion about meth labs as viable businesses, and what risk people should accept of being blown up. On its own, it is an interesting math question but I defer to Eliezer's Friendly AI planning: if you accept the risk, you accept the consequences. Under law of the sea, any nation is legally able to seize any boats in transit and the seastead itself despite being in national waters due to drugs. That was about the 5th blatant drug reference and seems to be part of their motivation; indeed they consider it income.

In between attempting to edit and giving up, I found they quoted me but didn't give me credit. Blarg to them!
