Why must every post by Elmo either be …
… a direct commercial for his “investment” scheme …
… or include a hyperlink to a commercial for his “investment” scheme?
Q - Does Elmo ever post anything other than a commercial for his “investment” scheme?
A - NO !!!

Technology has revolutionized our world, streamlining complex tasks and rapidly breaking down the barriers between developed and developing cities. Some cities in our world are more prepared than others for the future of technology, whether it be due to their integrated smart city plans, their push for universal access to internet, or their suitability for software and digital production. All cities on this list have been ranked by the Pricewaterhouse Coopers Cities of Opportunity 6 Report, which analyzes the current performance and future trajectory of a host of cities based on their internet access in schools, broadband quality, digital economy, and software development and multimedia design…

Seoul is the economic powerhouse of South Korea, producing 21% of national GDP while occupying less than 1% of the land mass. Home to tech giants such as Samsung and LG, Seoul has launched a “smart city” initiative, like Dubai. For a start, the city is giving out second-hand smart devices to low-income families, aiming to connect everyone to the city’s high-speed wireless networks. This high-tech hub even has intelligent CCTV cameras which can detect trespassing and high-tech street lamps which broadcast audio and give wireless internet access.

How the architecture of a floating city could look like …

• seastead architecture will be oriented to the interior patio and it will be covered by wave impact save shell solutions.
Does this mean living in enclosed dark ambients ? - certainly not. This can be ambient of an Ocean Sphere.

The inside of a bubble cluster seasteading structure may well look like a termite nest …
• What might diferentiate a Seastead from a land city a few miles away is that the architecture that is considered “extravagant” in the land City is “standard” in the sea city.
Seasteads can profit in their architecture from the fact that buildings in them are not subject to rigid code ambients and city regulations …
• A real estate square meter in such a floating city can be by far more economic than in a land city only a few miles away.
• Seasteads can be modern urban ambients, major port hubs, business centers.
Seasteading will develop in many axes many colors and many tastes - a specialty segment will certainly float out a self sufficient farm style venture beyond EEZ. But the most relevant developments will be floating modern urban ambients that cover the need of a 7,5 billion population on a aquatic planet.
Like in any real estate development investors will flock to the idea embrace the fact of floating real estate and start developing it…

SabMiller already looking into the concept of floating production sites…
SABMiller, one of the world’s largest brewers, has predicted how its breweries may look in the future, given a range of different scenarios determined by the cost and availability of water and energy.
Working with innovation consultancy, Innovia Technology, SABMiller envisioned four plausible business environments, based on the different uncertainties facing the brewing industry over the next 30 years. These scenarios informed thinking around how the ‘Brewery of the Future’ might look under different circumstances, with some surprising results.
The most extreme scenario, ‘Marginal Survival’ envisaged a market with limited access to water and high energy costs. This scenario – where people would migrate from areas of water shortage or turbulent weather -provoked the most unorthodox response. One of the proposed solutions was a smaller, mobile brewery which would move from place to place on the back of a ship.
Rob Wilkinson, Director of Innovia, said: “The descriptions are intended as food for thought rather than as blueprints for building new facilities. However, the example of the brewery on a ship is entirely feasible. It would allow for rapid entry to new markets, especially where no infrastructure is in place, it would provide flexibility in positioning and length of stay and allow SABMiller to move with water sources, with people, with crops, or even away from severe weather, natural disasters or political instability.”
Maurice Egan, SABMiller’s group head of manufacturing said: “Whilst this research has produced some imaginative solutions, the business case behind the thinking is very serious. We need to ensure that, given the rapid pace of technological developments, the impacts of climate change and
growing wealth in developing economies, SABMiller has the capability to define, design and deploy our future breweries and supply chains.”
In another scenario ‘Energy Deprived’, where energy prices and the cost of transport are high but water plentiful and cheap, the brewery is closely integrated with the community, sharing facilities and resources. For example, local farmers might use the brewery mills for processing crops, while the brewery would use their agricultural waste to create bio-fuel as an energy source; the kilns used for malting barley might also be shared with local businesses as a facility for drying paper pulp. The resulting brewery would be a sustainable building looking not unlike the Eden Project in Cornwall where hot processes are timetabled for the day and cold processes during the cooler night in order to optimise resource use.
The other two scenarios envisaged were:
‘Water Scarce’, where energy costs are low due to large scale investment in alternatives to fossil fuels, but water is in short supply exacerbated by population increases coupled with climate change. In this case, the brewery would be highly optimised for low water use, using less than 2 litre of water to produce 1 litre of beer compared to SABMiller’s current average of 4.5 litres; this would be achieved in part by implementing a continuous brewing system and in part by advanced water treatment technologies.
‘Plentiful Supply’ describes a world self-sufficient in both water and energy, which benefits from low transport costs, abundant rainfall and robust water infrastructure. In this cornucopia sustainability and environmental stewardship remain key drivers. For example, the brewery would use natural processes to upgrade waste or extract valuable chemicals from it so as to reduce environmental impact. Power would be derived from renewable sources such as solar panels, rainwater would be collected and as much water as possible recycled.

The madness is not in making a serious effort for ocean colonization the madness is thinking we can go on with “business as usual” in the next three decades comming up…
The madness is not let science free and unrestricted - the madness is to believe a “restriction of scientific and technological development” will make us safer.
