The world does not "need" cities as they are currently configured. 

Who says?  Not the people who live in them, that's for sure.

We see examples in the natural world of all types of innovative manufacturing of a multitude of high tech products ... and this "natural manufacturing" is distributed all over the world, not concentrated in monstrosities like cities.

This is content-free bullshit.

Tell us when you have have managed to grow an iPhone on your 1 acre per person allocation.  With no inputs.
I manufactured something far more sophisticated than an iPhone here on my property ... with no inputs except labor ... and I didn't need a city to do it ...

What am I talking about?

Baby goats!!
Sophistication is not the appropriate measure.

Functionality is.

Sophistication is often required to achieve a function.

When you can make a telephone call and take a picture and play a video on a baby goat be sure to let us know.
Step 1 for me is to come up with excellent food production and housing systems which completely shatter current paradigms.

Would be good enough.

geez, Dave, for someone who claims Newton as one of his heroes, you do resent the idea of standing on the shoulders of giants.

"Shattering current paradigms" isn't necessary for progress.  And even when people claim it's what they did, usually they didn't.
Dave has to be in the Forefront of the Hawkins Movement.  That's what this is all about.

Such as chickens shitting iPhones.

Arduino is a children's toy. Much as I hesitate to provide advice to improving Mobile GoatchwitzTM, I will recommend something like a Horner PLC, which is robust and purpose built for applications such as these. The base model is inexpensive (although not $10) and the software is free. They come with a built-in HMI so you can fiddle with the settings to your hearts desire if you set it up correctly.
Oh brother.

Link? For purchasing this device?

Seriously? Google "Horner PLC". Should take 2 seconds.

Something like this:
REGISTER??!!   To view pricing?

 Are you kidding me?
Try my link.
There are two login links.

One is in the navbar.  The other is at the top right corner of the page.  Which one are you using?
Top right, IIRC.

Photobucket works for me wit an ad blocker running.
Been deleted.
Especially not me.

Goat poop is an excellent source of calcium. They manufacture it internally so it never needs replenishment.

Oh, and it's a Hyper-V VM if that matters.
Different from what?  It's on a different Comcast network than my home.  The message seems to indicate it doesn't like its own URL.

That reminds me- I'm actually not sure this is for real or just a troll:
Congressman introduces 'COVFEFE Act,' law to make Trump's tweets official record
This  Act  may  be  cited  as  the  ''Communications  Over  Various  Feeds  Electronically  for  Engagement  Act  of  2017'' or the ''COVFEFE Act of 2017''.
It's both. He introduced an act and it's going to be ignored.
Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse

The vast majority of Trump's executive orders merely direct federal agencies to issue reviews and reports on a host of issues, from education to immigration to financial services to trade. Though the media often present executive orders as actually accomplishing the elimination of regulations or rollback of statutory law, they're mostly a form of political theater designed to give the appearance of forward motion. "Let's just dash off a memo, everyone can say we did something today," said Jon Michaels, an administrative law professor at UCLA.

The whole thing is well worth a read.
I've pretty much resigned myself to them passing some truly awful bill
Our only hope is for the loonies to reject the allegedly more moderate Senate bill that doesn't kill too many Americans for the "moderates", because it doesn't kill enough Americans.
Politics and Current Events / Re: Comey
Some interesting parallels between Comey's firing and Preet  Bharara's
Thing about Bharara is though that it's pretty much bog standard for an incoming administration to fire all the US attorneys and put their own candidates in those positions.
How many have been retained and replaced, respectively?


Oh and how many replacements nominated? Maybe you can guess?

Donald Trump just held the weirdest Cabinet meeting ever

First, he reviewed the various alleged successes of his first 143 days and made this remarkable claim: "Never has there been a president....with few exceptions...who's passed more legislation, who's done more things than I have."
Um, ok. While Trump has signed a number of executive orders and actions -- the most high profile of which, the so-called "travel ban" was, again, blocked by a court on Monday -- what he hasn't really done is pass actual legislation through Congres

He doesn't know what "legislation" means. Oh, and, he's clinically insane :

Once Trump finished touting his administration's accomplishments, he turned to several of his newly-minted Cabinet secretaries like Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. Each of those Cabinet secretaries lavished praise on Trump, which he accepted without comment but with a broad smile.
At first, I thought Trump was just going to have the new members of the Cabinet spend a few minutes praising him. NOPE! It soon became clear that Trump planned to have every Cabinet member speak. And when I say "speak" what I really mean is "praise Trump for his accomplishments, his foresight, his just being awesome."
You think I am exaggerating. I am not. Here's what White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said about Trump: "We thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda."

Damn, half-ninja'd. He belongs in a rubber room.
