Globe Hackers are people with an up-to-date understanding of our world, and a long term view of human potential. We are visionaries focused on solutions.
There are many things that make our planet unique, and one thing, regardless of our human differences, connects us all - our oceans.
Sailing is a humbling, exhilarating, and challenging experience. From ancient times it has been a major mode of exploration, opportunity for trade, expansion, and conquest. The sea holds a romance and history that defines the human spirit.
Exploration, independence, adventure, power, both natural and human, combined with an indomitable spirit has been the foundation of human progress across domains throughout our history. Nothing embodies these qualities more than the seafaring person.
Globe hackers are adept at enabling themselves to do what they want, within the law of course, anywhere they want, and by any means.
Globe Hackers are creative, curious and resilient people who don't give up easily and are always looking for the right solutions to complex problems.
They consider themselves citizens of the world and enjoy feeling connected to people across culture, age, race, creed, and other divides.
Most of all, Globe Hackers think they can.
Humanity's dream to fly had existed for thousands of years, its eventual realization made us godlike as we went from transatlantic solo flights to moon landings. The Space Shuttles, The Hubble Space Telescope, Pioneer 10, computer technology, satellites, and antenna arrays are helping us explore our Universe in greater detail than ever before.
Flight has allowed us to see ourselves and our place in the Universe in completely new ways.
Flight also epitomizes modern travel.

The Urban Dictionary's second definition of "Hacker" states:
"A person (usually possessing thorough knowledge in no single field), who is talented at devising superficial "fixes," which are nothing more than auxiliary work-arounds for problems which eventually have to be solved "correctly" by a "trained professional."
Hackers are self-motivated, and learn through experimentation and persistence, as opposed to through "traditional" means.
Computer hackers do not completely fit this definition. Due to the high artificiality of computer technology itself, computer hackers must be highly knowledgeable before they can implement their first successful "hack." For them, "hacks" are the product of brilliant insight and thorough investigation, rather than the talent and natural law that go with hacking in more humanity-driven fields, such as entertainment or sports.
Chess masters have a similar level of mental discipline, although many hackers tend to lack the attention span necessary to be good at chess."
“When I was very young and the urge to be someplace else was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would scratch this itch. When years described me as mature, the remedy prescribed was middle age.In middle age I was assured greater age would calm my fever and now that I am fifty-eight perhaps senility will do the job. Nothing has worked. Four hoarse blasts of a ship's whistle still raise the hair on my neck and set my feet to tapping. The sound of a jet, an engine warming up, even the clopping of shod hooves on pavement brings on the ancient shudder, the dry mouth and vacant eye, the hot palms and the churn of stomach high up under the rib cage. In other words, once a bum always a bum. I fear this disease incurable. I set this matter down not to instruct others but to inform myself....A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we not take a trip; a trip takes us.” John Steinbeck
