That wasn't me, I was just jumping into the conversation.
My posts are generally the mammoth walls of text barely under the character limit.
of course doing the same shit every day doesn't keep a kid entertained, it's a kid, you still have to make the effort to take it places, this commons would be the same as a play room in your house.>>40288571
You've got a TV in your pod anon
We have to apply different standards in this hypothetical living situation though, and it also depends on how the communities form around it.
perhaps a safe environment could be created where you would let kids of a certain age free roam the building, and then at another certain age the streets.
I try to be conservative even with my wacky hypotheticals, like I concede you would probably want mass passive surveilance to feel more secure (passive = no face recognition) just pointing down hallways, keeping eyes on pods to stop theft, monitoring commons for the same sort of reasons, cameras are a great deterrent.
of course muh freedoms and privacy come into play, but you must remember these areas are considered public areas, many cities already do mass surveilance.
it works less since it's less obvious.
everyone knows there are cameras in hotels
Hell, in high risk living areas (say hypothetical government funded pod buildings) id go as far as to suggest cameras in the bathrooms in the.. err.. public area of them, you know, where people wash their hands. just to stop incidences of rape and other illegal things in low income high risk communities.>>40288560
I smoke it's not illegal here, just not legal.
makes no difference i'd still smoke if it were illegal.>>40288634
yeah its definitely either a pipedream or an extreme long term (think hundreds of years) goal. but it would still be pretty cool.
I'm glad to hear of other places in the world being like you described, it makes sense to me.. I don't drive, I own a car but it's at my parents too.
