"You're onto something powerful," says Dan Gillmor.
The Freedom Ship will continuously circle the globe, covering most of the world's coastal regions every 2 years. It will spend 25% of its time in motion, and 75% sitting offshore exciting touring destinations. I love the web!

Weblogs are to the WWW what Trailblazers were to Memex, except not hypothetical.'
