A warm Ides of March from all of us here. We don’t have the gift of prophecy, so the outlook for 2045 is a bit cloudy, and it’ll be cloudier still if redcell254 is right, with geoengineering gone wrong over in the Workshop. stealth2016 has a similar idea, but on a smaller scale and without the apocalyptic ramifications, “Obscurant Dusting Drones”. Are drone swarms good for more than overwhelming air defenses and half time shows? What opportunities do smart, distributed systems that can be tasked with even the most menial of jobs present?

The Imaginarium is closing in on 100 total Sparks, and the most reacted still “Electromagnetic propulsion” with “Commemorative and Surrogate Chat Bots” hanging on to most inspiring. “Go Medieval” from bpybus still leads the scoring, but we’ll see as we charge through week 2. The Marketplace is indexing 112 ideas, with 676 investments in the last 10 days. The long position on gcoyote’s “Recon-by-Wire” was the smart bet, and the conversation lead has jumped to redcell254’s “Robotic and Genetic Black Market.”

Checking the Leaderboard you’ll see redcell254’s lead over number two contributor Echo tightening, maybe we’ll see a leader switch tomorrow? Either way, we’d like to thank everybody for playing and BZZZZZRRRRRRRT Et tu bot?
