Patri Friedman

My main activity these days is on these networks:

My life in Capitola, California is centered around my my amazing wife Brit Benjamin, my children Tovar, Iselle, and Honor, my job at Pronomos Capital, my angel micro-fund Zarco Investment Group, and my work at The Seasteading Institute, a small non-profit whose mission is "To establish permanent, autonomous ocean communities to enable experimentation and innovation with diverse social, political, and legal systems". Please consider joining TSI and helping us increase competition in government.

Most people come across me via my views on politics, which are described in some of these essays, talks, and papers:

Some other projects:

If you need to correspond with me, I can be reached for personal things as patrissimo-at-gmail-dot-com and for work things as patri-at-seasteading-dot-org. I am able to skim all inbound, but unfortunately often don't have the time to respond to it quickly, at length, or sometimes at all. If you promise not to take it personally, I'll promise to use my time to do awesome things :) . (Here's a good piece on the philosophy behind this.)
