About a year ago, I was wondering what had happened to HavenCo, the well hyped data hosting facility that was to be set up in the "nation" of Sealand, a floating platform off the coast of England, that some claim is its own nation. The idea was that they would set up a co-location facility that would be immune to laws of other nations, and let people host whatever content they wanted. After it was announced, it pretty much disappeared from public view. Then, last year, there was a short story saying that it was still going strong. Looks like that might not be the case any more. The former CTO of HavenCo says he's no longer working for the company, and that it's in a lot of trouble. He claims that the people who control Sealand have become increasingly worried about the content they would host (and turned down Film88.com - an online movie distribution site). He also says that they've had trouble with keeping their connection up, and there are only six customers left of the data center. Doesn't sound particularly promising.
