Basically, the view that trade unions can and should have a role to play in giving workers the means of production in hands. My interest in this stems from the idea that in any 'lawless' environment, people will band together for protection and increased productivity. The idea of self-managed workers also appeals to me.
Transhuman Space is the name of a roleplaying game from Steve Jackson Games. It is set in 2100, and it is an example of 'hard sci-fi': no 'magic' in the form of faster-than-light drives or the like, but with scientific, social and political trends extrapolated from the current state of the world. The setting is transhumanist, in that people have transcended their original forms and have spawned several lines of consciousness-bearing entities, such as AIs and biological robots. A lot of the action is set in space: most of the solar system has been colonised by one faction or the other.
Some of the things predicted in the main rulebook are already happening, which is exciting and frightening at the same time.
The idea that one will be surrounded by computing instruments, that will respond to the users needs. Imagine not having to carry around a PDA or cellphone, but simply having access to the information you need everywhere you go. The shipboard computer in Star Trek is like that.
I'm interested in the era of the vikings. One of the most common misconceptions surrounding vikings is the idea that they wore horned helmets -- they did no such thing. So when we were in the Archeon for a special Viking-festival and we saw this hat in the shop, I had to try it on... klik snapped this pic.
I use this icon to signify irony and encouragement -- I leave it up to the reader which I mean when I use this icon to a post of theirs. ;)
The Shadow Girls from Revolutionary Girl Utena. I use this icon to signify mystery and a (possible) deeper meaning.
There is little chance of you finding one of these guys in your bathtub -- they live in the deep sea. I use this icon to signify discomfort -- and sometimes to tease. :)
