23. There's a guy in Panama who fancies himself a present day
John Galt. His name is Sam Taliaferro. He writes a blog which links to Atlas Shrugged on Amazon.
He is the developer of Valle Escondido, in Boquete, Panama.

http://primapanama.blogs.com /

"When Sam first created Valle Escondido, it was his goal to create a community built to first world standards, set in a beautiful environment and blessed with one of the world's finest climates. But more than that, he set out to create a community that was self sufficient, one that wouldn't need to depend on anyone or anything outside of the project to provide the basic necessities of life."

Sound like John Galt?

He links to this CNN article about the popularity of Atlas Shrugged on his blog.
