This is an interesting story about the fine folks down at Starnix in Toronto.

They’re apparently messing with people again.

I think that it’s getting to be time for a geek commune somewhere in Toronto.

I’ve got some ideas….

It needs to be both family and single people friendly — think apartment tower / megalith with attached town house complex.

Needs a total av / communications interlink… gigabit + abg.

And it needs to run smart — dual waste water systems, dual fresh water systems, solar, wind power, passive solar heating/cooling, solar water, biodiesel / electric community cars, bikes… the whole thing.
