Running A Software Business From The Antarctic

New marine communications methods allow for new life styles. Here is a perfect example of that. Jonathan Selby is sailing the world over, sometimes single-handedly, but still is an active co-owner of Xaxero Marine Software.
“Today we sailed through the mind-bending Lemaire Channel that separates Booth Island from the Antarctic Peninsula. The staggering, crazy shapes of beached icebergs dominate the landscape, and the particularly nasty email I got from a disgruntled customer fades to insignificance. Working out of a briefcase is the norm for many of us, but the freedom of modern communications allows us to take this to extremes � in my case, to the limits of where cruising is possible and the Antarctic Peninsula.”
