Jeff Hawkins' Schooner



Palm Computing's and Handspring's founder Jeff Hawkins built the schooner Jakatan. It is quite a bit smaller and more practical than the majority of the recent Silicon Valley vessels. He has a really nice website documenting the design and construction. As you might expect, there is an amazing attention to detail and clever innovations throughout. Here is an article about Jakatan in CruisingWorld .

Jeff is a very diverse thinker. Here is a talk he gave at the TED Conference on brain science and computing.
