Tech Island Nation

The idea of starting your own country on a tropical island for the sole purpose of abolishing laws related to technology, the wired world, copyrights, etc... has been in the news lately. I think the idea started with the Pirate Bay guys. You can read what Ars Technica has to say on the subject here.

But, I first came across the idea in Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I know this is the second time I've discussed Stephenson, but I swear I'm not a fanboy.
