Outsourcing off Los Angeles High Seas!!

ADTMAG reports about three entrepreneurs in San Diego,plan to buy a used cruise ship and station it close enough for a half-hour water taxi ride to shore, but far enough to avoid H1B jurisdiction and are about to launch a company that will offer software development off the coast of California—three miles outside Los Angeles. The project pricing "will be comparable to a distant-shore firm." By stationing the ship in international waters, SeaCode,the company,will be able to remain close to U.S. clients while picking and choosing IT talent from around the world—something that tightening H1B visa requirements have made difficult in the U.S. Longtime IT columnist John Dvorak disparaged the idea as an Indian slave ship in his blog.
My Take: I have only heard of recreation onboard cruise ships - work while in ship - crazy and outrageous. Offshoring is not just about cost – its about, quality, processes, skill levels, training benefits , program management, security, delivery all bundled together at economical cost.
