We told you about James Hamilton, a distinguished engineer who makes sure Amazon’s $4.5 billion tech infrastructure business runs smoothly.About four years ago, Hamilton and his family made a decision to sell most of their belongings and “hack their lives” as Wired’s Robert McMillan describes it.
The Hamiltons moved aboard the Dirona, a custom-built, 52-foot Nordhavn yacht; they were intimately involved in the boat’s design.
Hamilton often sails the Dirona from Hawaii and works remotely from there. He commutes on a bicycle and he does his shopping via Amazon Prime, picking up purchases at the local UPS store.
