Just in case you think you're a techie, and just in case you think your life schemes are over the top, go compare yourself to the "high-tech nomad," Steve Roberts, and his new boat Datawake (clever name combining data and awake and wake...his last boat was called Nomadness).
I know nothing about any of this; Eolake sent me the link (Steve is a friend of his) and my eyes got wider and wider as I scrolled down. Holy mad-scientist genius, Batman!
I admit that occasionally I have pipe dreams of locating TOP World Headquarters on a floating platform, but then I come to and realize that first, I would have to turn myself into...well, someone else. I know none of the myriad practical things you need to know to run a boat. This gets back to my contention that I'm lucky I'm not rich, because if I were I'd be exponentially more impractical and get myself into much more trouble. On the good side, my new house in the Finger Lakes is ship-shape!
Sorry, I'm free-associating again. Anyway, Steve seems to be the guy you'd have to be to do what's he's doing. Sure is cool...I wonder if his other house is inside a mountain, with a sliding top for launching rocket ships?
(Thanks to Eolake)
