Welcome, fellow curio. Do you find it annoying that the world is not exactly as you would like it to be? Do you find yourself wondering what life would be like if you could change it even in a small way? Do you simply have a vision of the world that makes you smile or laugh or cry (or want to hit someone with a really big stick)? Then this is sort of the place for you. The purpose of this community is for you to suggest how the world might be different and for other people to chip in with what consequences they think that would make. These can be serious, funny, deep and profound or just plain stupid! It doesn't matter. I know what your thinking, "that sounds a bit shit" well you'd be right. But its a great way to waste time. Heres one to start with...
What If...YOU ruled the world?
Current Mood: curious

I'd re-organize cities and towns. People do not need huge individual houses in a several hour drive from work. We'd have trains, buses and slidewalks (remember those). Also, cities would be huge half buried hives, kind of like in "Things to Come".
Society, I'd still allow wealth, but change the motive behind it to 'how do I help society?' A person who cured a disease or made a process more efficent would get a lot of praise and a little reward. A person who exploited tax loopholes and layoffs to cut a quick process could live in the woods for a year.
I like the idea behind this board, hope you keep it up;-)
Thank You, I plan too. Just need to get more members....

I'll try to help a bit
By steering some traffic your way. Not too much by my sites recently, but I'm starting things in motion again and was going to advertize.
(on cash strapped but super-high bandwith webcomics I like)
Part of my coming updates are some "Transhumanism" and "Future society" things and I'd like to cross link with areas that discuss futurist concepts.
Can't promise anything, but we'll see;-)
