Blueseed ~ Visa-Free Floating Startup Hubship!

Fascinating to read about Blueseed, the visa-free floating startup and tech incubator ship planned off Silicon Valley, CA...
"Because of the United States' current immigration and regulatory regime, bold and creative entrepreneurs from around the world aren’t given the chance to come to Silicon Valley and develop the technologies that could be creating jobs and propelling the economy forward. Blueseed aims to solve this problem so that Silicon Valley remains the world’s center for innovation. Our team, backed by Paypal founder Peter Thiel, is creating a high-tech visa-free entrepreneurship and technology incubator on an ocean vessel in international waters. Our facilities will be a short ferry ride away from Silicon Valley so that great ideas and talent from around the world can live, work, and play while having convenient access to the San Francisco Bay Area. We will provide a customized environment centered around smart, proven, cost-effective legal best practices, and modern living and work accommodations."
So far multiple vessel concepts have been floated... Be sure to also read Tafline Laylin's interview of the Blueseed founders on Inhabitat.
