Outsourcing with a twist

Picked up this story a little while back. Seems a company called Sea Code is determined to test the limits of off-shore exploitation by importing a cruise ship full of foreign software professionals for the purposes of outsourcing. By having their "office" in international waters, they are hoping to skirt immigration, taxation, and other payroll laws, all the while screwing the American worked in the name of improving profits and dividends for the participants of the ownership culture. Can't wait to see how this plays out.
