[The following is an attempt of getting others on the board to create an interactive fable in the spirt of a Sciforums convention in 2021, well the run up.. this is like the Prologue from my viewpoint, it's up to you and other happy posters to come up with your prologues to a sciforums convention. Be as imaginative as you like, and if this takes off, I'll get Porfiry to send the best entry a mug Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! (at my expense Dave).] Many years ago I found this bulletin board after someone calling himself "Reign of Error" pointed it out. It was back in the days when you had to type, because the speech recognition software wasn't in full use and the compression systems weren't high enough to place video or audio messages. I found the board of use to debating some of the most radical points of view at the time... that was before the information curve of 2015 through the use of quantum brains and Kmguru becoming a multimillionare through his antigravity cars. I never was really a mechanic... I still wonder how those things stay up there as they fly past.... Not to mention the fact that the artificial intelligence systems spawned to make them as safe as possible... Last thing anyone would want is a car dropping in while they are in their virtual suite. That reminds me, just a few hours ago I was busy walking through some projections of my cooperate accounts (which I've managed to stay clear of arrears.) I stumbled across a memo drafted on the virtual board.... A "sciforums convention" where all the old board posters and the new ones would be hanging out. Yeah Sciforums had grown many years back after Dave got this brainwave from some post that when someones intellectual property had been delivered to the board that taking the information and editing it together, allowed the board posters to have not just thoughts and ideas published but also certain new principles of understanding. It was known that allowed a few of the posters to obtain Nobel and Pulitzer prizes. there was also a number of art prizes, but Bebelina managed to gain all of them. I think what did it was her exhibit called "In the pink!" Well the convention is in an hour... so I'm going to go get ready... but I'm sure there are others that are quite happy to stick in their logs about the run up to the convention and what they remember of the past of sciforums... until later... take care.
