Ocean Geohashing?

Today’s xkcd suggests geohashing – using the date and Dow opening to generate a random physical location for a meetup.  It’s fun to think about this method being used to coordinate Ephemerisle gatherings.  I can see the method being both better and worse on the ocean because of it’s relative homogeneity – every place is like every other place.  So you don’t have the failure mode of randomly generating a location that’s difficult or impossible to reach, but you don’t get the excitement of generating a location that is challenging and fun to get to.

  1. I know this goes against the whole idea of not pissing off governments, but we could just knock out the satellites, temporarily of course. And blame it on unusual solar radiation or some such thing.
