  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    I saw it in Nashville. Awesome. My write-up of the experience is here: http://www.pelicancrossing.net/netwars/2017/08/the_greatest_show_on_earth.html wg...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    I've bogged down in reading this lengthy discussion, but the argument above about the Nissan Leaf suggests a very real thing: the increasing split between rural and urban environments and facilities. For reasons of population, cities get a lot of...
