From the look of the barge's proposed schedule, Google had hoped to open its ship to visitors this month. The schedule mentions San Diego as a destination after November 2014. Seattle also seems like a possible port of call.

Re: What About the East Coast Barge?
Regarding the East Coast barge, someone will have to FOIA the documents from the relevant authority there to find out.

Re: hope for smooth seas
"Interesting Thing Google is doing. They are sure to attract guests but I hope the water stays calm."

I assume the barges will be fairly stable when docked. Google does not want videos of guests getting ill splashed across YouTube.

Good researching!
Woh, Tom, that gumshoeing was worthy of Carl Bernstein!  If this is the "new" info week, I'm all for it.

re: Google Barge: 10 Informative Images
You mean the Nexus Q? It was cancelled after initial reviews were underwhelming. I expect something similar will return at a more sensible price point.

re: Google Barge: 10 Informative Images
Now instead of using its incredible advertising profits for noble "thousand flowers" technology experiments -- 995 of which seem to struggle in obscurity before being scuttled -- it seems like Google is now splurging on great big bouquets that get a lot of attention -- temporarily at least. Whatever happened to that Nexus 4 orb?
