Forbes: FSP is "Hotbed of Libertarian Activism in the Country"

Kashmir Hill of Forbes covers the Free State Project: "When I speak to [Cody] Wilson months later by phone, he compares the Free State Project in New Hampshire with Silicon Valley; both places have libertarian-leaning techies trying to make disruptive technologies popular. 'Silicon Valley is more capitalized and less about practical liberty than the Free State community, which has a better stake in the freedom at the heart of these technologies,' he says. 'It’s the hotbed of libertarian activism in the country.'” Read the whole article here.

Great article! Just a couple of point.

From the article, "New Hampshire (population: 1.3 million) won — narrowly beating out Wyoming (population: 576,000) — and early movers began trickling in to help the state fully realize its “Live Free or Die” motto."

For 1st place votes, New Hampshire beat Wyoming 60% to 40%. Personally, I don't call that narrow but different people have different opinions.

Also from the article, "New Hampshire is one of the few states without a mandatory seatbelt law.."

New Hampshire is the only state without a mandatory adult seatbelt law. That's been the case since 1995, I believe.
