The Venus Project

My eyes are burning like 2 pissholes in the snow, after tracking the flood of trillionstars.com videos that have emerged in the last week or so. I'm hoping to post something about them in the next few days, time permitting.
I couldn't resist putting up something about a more collectivist utopian vision as a partial reply, but I advise extreme caution as I think The Venus Project is also moving towards loopy extremes. I started out by looking at Confessions of an Economic Hitman, then moved to Zeitgeist Addendum. Hence I'll be tagging this post with reference to "conspiracy theories" to signal my suspicions. To be sure, I like the sci-fi like design, somewhat reminiscent of Buckminster Fuller's arcologies, but I vow to reserve judgement pending academic verification......

G,day I am an author of sci-fi work. I love your blog site, the art work and destroy all monsters is wonderful. I have engrossed my self in the whole sci-fi horror adventure world for a life time. Alien species battling for real estate is a definite must here. My novel Doom Of The Shem is a perfect example of a fight scene ladden fantasy world of weapons and violence.doomoftheshem.blogspot.com
