dandv writes: "From VentureBeat, http://venturebeat.com/2012/05/06/blueseed-startup-ship/, The Register, Huffington Post, Globe and Mail and others today:

Blueseed is a Silicon Valley company that plans on launching a cruise ship 30 minutes from the coast of California, housing startup entrepreneurs from around the world. These startuppers won't need to bother with US visas, because the ship will be in international waters. They'll have to pay tax to whatever country they're incorporated in, though. So far, 146 startups said they'd like to come to the ship — http://bit.ly/BlueseedStartupSurvey1"
