Startup Blueseed plans a "Googleplex of the Sea," a cruise ship-turned-floating-office-park anchored in international waters 12 miles from Silicon Valley. It will house technology startups and other entrepreneurs who can't qualify for U.S. work visas. The ship has room for some 1,000 entrepreneurs, plus crew members and a host of "enhancers" such as accountants, intellectual-property attorneys, and other consultancies--much like a land-based business incubator might offer. The ship will feature just about every service and amenity you can imagine: Onboard medical services, a concierge, 24-7 security, full-service gym, dining, shopping, and a variety of entertainment options. A certain number of rooms will be set aside as a hotel of sorts for overnight visits from investors, media, musicians and other artists, and similar guests.
