Though as a Democrat (yes, I got fed up with the local Greens and besides, I was hoping I could have an impact on the primary process), I should be scandalized by this, my inner Neal Stephenson and my inner Monty Python are both loving the idea of a H1B cruise ship, hovering (possibly) in international waters off the coast of California.
The frustration of a shutdown of H1B visas, coupled with foreign labor that is often better trained, cheaper, and harder working, has proven to be a continuing issue for tech companies. But the problem with India (or Ireland or whatever) is that they are just so darn far away. Wounldn’t it be nice if they delivered?
Sure, there is the inevitable comparison with slave (labor) ships, but overall, I love this idea, if only for the strangeness of it.
