Re: Net Neutrality

To try to pull back a bit from the emotion, I've carefully read a number of the "net neutrality" arguments, and I think I can see how it emerges from several beliefs: [...] It is impossible for new and more responsive ISPs to emerge who can compete with the current big (and abusive) ISPs. I honestl...

Re: S46's mega suggestion thread (will edit whenever something new pops up from out of my brain)

Thus components of megastations can change relationship to each other, including war. So how to handle that? If it is handled for planets, then similarly for mega-stations (how do you decide if a second colony can come on the planet). It is also similar to the decision to build another, independant...

Re: S46's mega suggestion thread (will edit whenever something new pops up from out of my brain)

Yeah, but basically, when you land in one station, you get one image and one description. They can be complex, explain that the society is diverse, but there is only one. ...

Re: S46's mega suggestion thread (will edit whenever something new pops up from out of my brain)

the difference here in my mind is that cities usually arent directly connected. but a megastation is just one gigantic blob of infrastructure, so who controls what parts of it? logically there'd be a gigantic lot of politics who controls which generator and where its power is flowing and the owners...
