I'd be happy to go back to work in an office environment, as long as I have my own desk in my own office with my own restroom and kitchen, of course — oh! and I'll need to keep that commute under a few minutes and will be playing industrial at top volume exactly half the time while demanding complete silence for the other half

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz There's a part of me imagining a "corporate town" taken to the extreme of just having the entire company living in the same high-rise of studio apartments living and working from the same 500 square feet -- buying their groceries from the company store on the ground floor.

The doors only open in.

@lordbowlich @zpojqwfejwfhiunz i see those scenarios somewhat as a 'the doors always open, but you really don't want to see what's become of the outside world' scenarios. It's not that, but it's making me think of Whittier, Alaska. Which is an Alaskan town where not all but apparently nearly all the population lives in one building complex that also houses the town businesses and government.

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz @LilFluff After climate change is done with it, it'll be the next Silicon Valley! That's the place! I think I ended up catching two videos in quick succession that mentioned it (iirc one of them was on the subject of arcologies and gave it as a sort of ramshackle real life one).

@LilFluff @lordbowlich I saw a documentary about it before the DOA bailout to fix the heat and it seemed like living in a spaceship is often portrayed in grittier sci-fi
