We have a very nice interview with Captain Charles Moore of Algalita Marine Research Foundation - click here to read it.
By the way, Capt. Moore and crew just finished their month-long 2008 expedition through the North Pacific Gyre. The AMRF website has an excellent blog with lots of photos that documents the entire voyage with daily entries. If you like the PS interview I think you will enjoy reading the blog too. You can find it here (note: the entries are posted blog-style, with the earliest entries at the bottom of the page and the most recent at the top - in other words you gotta read these things backwards).
Stay away from those plastics.
