The Pirate Compensation Model Mindmap

Whydah

In 2011 I went to the “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah” Traveling Exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. I fenced competitively for 20 years, so this sort of exhibit was right up my alley.

In April 26, 1717, the Whydah was caught in a violent storm and wrecked. Whydah and her treasure eluded discovery for over 260 years until 1984… Whydah is the only fully authenticated Golden Age pirate shipwreck ever discovered.

The exhibit had more than just artifacts and also introduced me to the intriguing culture and operational practices of pirates –  which were quite evolved in regards to logistics and management. This led me to discover some insights about Pirate Compensation Model. Click here to view the full and interactive mindmap I made on this exhibit.

Oh, and if you are ever on Cape Cod you can see this exhibit at the Whydah Pirate Museum.
