Post-Westphalian offshoring


Some guys in LA have decided it would be easier and cheaper to "almost" import their computer programmers. Rather than pay high wages and have the hassle of getting H-1s, they're just parking a cruise ship three miles off the southern California coast.

The result is cheap 24x7 programming, close enough that non-tech US citizens (e.g., cooks, maids, Capt Stubing) can commute back home at night.

Life is catching up with fiction.
