Blueseed Visa Free Silicon Valley Startup Ship gains Interest
The utopian Blueseed project is back in the news. A survey published by Blueseed reveals that over 130 international startups would be boarding to work near Silicon Valley without Visas.
Working as a foreigner in Silicon Valley is a pain, unless you got a GreenCard. In my 7 years in the Silicon Valley I had to get several H1Bs to work for different startups including my own. The Visa requirement is heavily limiting the choice for which company to work for and basically kills efforts to get funding for your own. Blueseed would allow to avoid these hassles, by staying in international waters - 12 miles off the San Francisco Peninsula.
Blueseed is funded by Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal, which makes the whole project more real. The ship is supposed to leave end of 2013.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
